Program Description:

Overview

Cross Cultural Management Broc

This experiential learning opportunity is a three-week study abroad program in London, United Kingdom, led by Dr. Anthony Klotz (Assistant Professor of Management). During the three weeks in London, students will study the effects of globalization and cross-cultural differences on management and leadership, and will learn about the pros and cons of expatriation as they consider embarking on their own global career. Students will learn about theories of management and how they apply across cultures, as well as readings and subsequent discussion exploring how cultures reliably differ from one another and how to navigate these differences. Most importantly, students will experience cross-cultural differences firsthand through a number of excursions that will expose them to British culture, visits to multinational organizations headquartered in London, and guest lectures by global business leaders.
 

Areas of Study

Students will earn eight credits for taking two courses in London—BA 352 (Managing Individuals and Teams) and MGMT 452 (Leadership). These courses focus on Management and Leadership, but in London, they will be focused on these topics as they relate to global business in general, and business in London in particular.

BA 352 This course will increase students’ understanding of individual and small-group behavior and develop skills for improving individual and small-group performance in a variety of organizational settings, and across different cultures. The emphasis will be on professional skill development, understanding considerations for improving both organizational outcomes and employee well-being, and the practical application of the theoretical concepts and research discussed in class.

Students who successfully complete BA 352:
 
  1. Understand the tools and techniques used to motivate employees across cultures.
  2. Have assessed how their values, attitudes, perceptions and behaviors impact their interpersonal effectiveness and professionalism in global settings.
  3. Have developed and enhanced the essential interpersonal skills for being an effective team leader and member of a variety of organizations with a cross-cultural membership.
  4. Have used appropriate conceptual frameworks from management research and practice to diagnose and improve individual performance and group dynamics.
  5. Have a framework for assessing the ethical implications of the decisions they make and the actions they take so that they work more effectively with persons (1) with disabilities, (2) from diverse ethnic, cultural, gender backgrounds and (3) across various hierarchical and social strata.
MGMT 452 This course provides students with the in-depth concepts and theories of leadership as well as an opportunity to evaluate their capabilities to be effective leaders in workplaces not only in the US, but in global settings as well. Students will learn how to transfer and apply the material in this course to their “real life” experiences in organizations. Therefore, they will become better prepared for their careers as effective leaders in contemporary organizations.

Students who successfully complete MGMT 452 will be able to:
 
  1. Develop a global mindset that will enable them to be successful leaders in different cultural settings.
  2. Identify and describe classical and modern theories and practices of leadership.
  3. Identify and seek solutions that minimize emerging leadership challenges in contemporary organizations.
  4. Understand the importance of individual differences, diversity, cross-cultural issues on leading people in organizations and thereby enhancing leadership capabilities within organizational contexts.
  5. Develop leadership skills by participating in a wide variety of course activities.
