Intercultural Communication and Management

Intercultural Communication and Management


The Intercultural Communication and Management course tackles one of the key topics of modern management: how to handle interactions with customers, personnel and organisational systems from different cultures in the global market. Nowadays, more and more organisations and companies operate on an international scale; therefore, they cannot underestimate the influence of cultural variables on consumer purchasing behaviour and on managerial, professional and communication styles.

Furthermore and ever more frequently, the mergers and acquisitions of companies, joint ventures and international partnerships result in having to confront different cultural values and organisational and strategic systems that must be adequately managed, lest this kind of operation fail. Also, from a specifically operational point of view, cultural diversity has a profound effect on interpersonal communication modalities; a lack of awareness and competency in these subjects may give rise to very problematic situations. Today, all this creates the need for dedicated training in intercultural communication and management.


The Intercultural Communication and Management course is aimed at providing you with the conceptual and operational tools to enable you to function as a manager in an international environment. On completion of the course, you will be able to:

  • understand the meaning of culture and the impact of cultural diversity on business and management;
  • evaluate and interpret cultural diversity by means of the most advanced conceptual models;
  • understand and manage the various levels of cultural influence on business (national/regional, by productive sector, professional, functional and company) and their interactions;
  • understand and manage the communication models and styles of the various cultures of the world;
  • understand and manage the impact of cultural influences on the organisation, the company strategy and customer and personnel relations;
  • operate in international teams;
  • understand the competencies necessary for international level management, with particular reference to cultural diversity management.
