This course is designed to provide prospective students (whose majors have an international flavor) with tools that offer powerful possibilities for improving the communication process. We will examine the process of sending and receiving messages between people whose cultural background could lead them to interpret verbal and nonverbal signs differently. We will learn about the diversity of these cultural differences and at the same time learn how we might overcome them. Our efforts to recognize and surmount cultural differences will hopefully open up business opportunities throughout the world and maximize the contribution of all the employees in a diverse workforce.
