This subject guide is meant to assist students, particularly those enrolled in IRE1725, with research papers and assignments.

Welcome to Cross Cultural Differences in Organizational Contexts

Understanding the functioning of Western European and American organizations has been an ongoing effort for most of the 20th century. In the 21st century it is important to understand how organizations function in a wide variety of cultures. This course will focus on understanding cultural differences in behaviour in organizations. It will critically examine current research and theory in cross-cultural organizational behaviour, psychology and human resources management. In addition to providing students with a theoretical understanding of organizational behaviour in a cross-cultural context, students will also have an opportunity to develop culturally relevant interpersonal skills via a variety of exercises including role plays and case discussions.
