Executive educationDoing business in a global world
In our globalized world with its fading borders, language and culture still constitute invisible barriers to international cooperation and exchange. Dauphine's Master's program in the new field of Cross-cultural Management is our contribution to breaking down those barriers.
Although economic globalization and the growing mobility of people, goods, services and information give us the illusion of a borderless world, cultural specificities, local customs and national biases have far from vanished. Large corporations and organizations, even armed with a solid institutional culture, are the first to feel the effects of persistent cultural differences and their impact on performance. But they are not alone….
Global horizons and the world 'at large'
"So how does one manage culturally diverse teams? What can we do to better integrate 'foreign' employees? How can we reduce the risk of discriminatory behavior, increase employees' capacity to work effectively in a culturally diverse environment while encouraging innovation and fostering shared values and practices? Those are just some of the issues at stake for cross-cultural managers not only in multinational groups but also in small and mid-size companies and even start-ups tempted by the 'world at large' and its global horizons," comments Philippe Pierre, consultant is human resources (GRH) and co-director with Jean-François Chanlat of Univeristé Paris-Dauphine's Master's in Cross-cultural Management.
During the 14-month Master's program, students study the cultures of the world's principal economies, their complexity and impact on the organizational structure of corporations and small and mid-size businesses.
