Business Across Cultures is an English Course with the following contents:
 Types of Cultures
many transnational mergers fail because organizations with different cultures fail to identify the differences between them and learn how to live or deal with these differences.
 At and After work
Understanding the working environment and how people behave outside the workplace is considered to be of great help in our business relations with people from different countries and different organizations.
 Language Structures
Language reflects many aspects of culture. some people may express themselves directly because they feel this is honest and helpful. Others, from other cultures, may find it rude and aggressive... Language is used to put up barriers and to break them down.
 Communication Goals
The biggest challenge perhaps for every business person working internationally is to develop a flexible style of communication which takes into account the needs and interests of different audiences.
Information / Seriousness / Interaction / Etc.
Purposes / Roles / Processes
Time / Roles / Tactics
 The audience
We may find some cultural differences between two business departments, for example between marketing and finance. Now consider two companies within different cultures. They may speak different languages and think in different ways. Getting to know your audience is key-point.
 Leadership Formats
Do the subordinates look up to their leaders with a mixture of fear and respect? Individualism, collectivism, gender, masculinity & feminity issues are considered in this topic.
 Corporate x Social Cultures
