Module content and teaching

Principal aims

How does culture affect the way we do business? How can we communicate effectively across culturally different workplaces and with diverse stakeholders? What is localisation and why is it relevant? This module will help you to gain a better understanding of communication within and across global businesses at individual and corporate levels, internally and externally. One important topic we’ll engage with is the way social media has changed the landscape of business communication and what values and beliefs about culture are having an impact on new media use in the modern business world. This module will promote your awareness and understanding of key aspects of communication, and importantly help you to develop your ability to communicate effectively across differences within the context of global business culture.
