Cultural Diversity in Global Business

VUSM-201

This course examines cultural diversity and its value in a global business environment. Students will examine the interactive effects of demographic, historical, socio-cultural, political/legal, economic and technological forces as they relate to resolving dilemmas; all cultures have the same dilemmas to solve, but the approach to solving the dilemmas depends on one's culture. Through analyzing cultural differences, students will become more self-aware and learn how to leverage differences to effectively reconcile dilemmas. Additionally, they will understand how privilege and oppression might vary in different cultures. Prerequisite: any 100-level VUSM course or transfer student placement. LDW, SS
