授業の概要 Course Overview


Aligning with the NUCB Business School's mission statement, this course aims to nurture innovative, ethical leaders who possess a ‘Frontier Spirit’ in managing and leading multicultural teams in response to the contemporary environments in the New Asian and global context.
The primary purpose of this course is to provide students with an opportunity to develop a better understanding of the dynamics of multicultural groups and teams and to learn intervention skills to improve the individual, team and organizational performance. We will explore multicultural implications for the individual, team, and organizational effectiveness. We will intentionally utilize the diversity in the classroom to shape several levels of a multicultural and intercultural learning community.
By taking part in this course, students will deepen their understanding of the following areas in leading a multicultural team:
strategic value of culture, organizational and national culture, team process, global virtual team, cross-cultural communication, ethics, and human resources management.
