The globalized economy has made cross-cultural skills a necessity for any thriving businessperson. This is especially a big challenge in Japan, where cultural gaps with the rest of the world are seemingly large.

At this interactive online Trial Class, GLOBIS lecturer Megumi Taoka will share insights into practical ways of looking at cultural differences and leveraging cultural intelligence to gain influence in a global business environment.

Participants will have the chance to discuss how to identify different cultural behaviors as well as the impacts of biases and stereotyping in the business environments through engaging with short case studies and get a glimpse of what is taught at the MBA course “Cross Cultural Management”.
