  • Overview

    This unit examines new and emerging developments and challenges that international mangers are currently facing and are likely to face in the coming years while managing across borders, where people from diverse cultures interact, both within and between firms.

    Given that changes in the global business environment continue unabated, particular attention is paid to managing the increasingly diverse workforce in the Australian context, as well as in the context of Australian firms that conduct business in Asia and beyond. The unit provides a setting for understanding the implications of this diversity on the management of cross-cultural dynamics in a multi-cultural business environment. The unit equips
    students with knowledge of mandatory policy requirements when managing a diverse workplace in order to avoid
    expensive law suits and punitive damages.
