Lernziele / Kompetenzen

On the basis of a holistic understanding of culture, the students will gain competencies for understanding (inter-) cultural aspects and dimensions and discuss, analyze and evaluate their importance for business practice. They will be able to reflect on their own and foreign cultures and develop intercultural competence for working within a multinational working environment. This includes the knowledge and critical reflection of relevant literature and selected case studies, identification of central issues and the transfer of possible solutions for selected problems.

In addition to subject-specific knowledge, the students will further develop their competences to work in teams, train their critical thinking and analytical proficiency, and learn to present and critically discuss own opinions, ideas and results - both in groups as well as in front of the whole group.
