GBS Workshop: The Cultural Iceberg
To break stereotypes and succeed in international business
November 21st, 14:30 – 15:15
About the workshop:
Culture can be best imagined as an iceberg: the parts you see are usually only a small fraction of the entire phenomenon. There is much more to culture than meets the eye, and understanding those elements, or those layers, that make up culture is an important asset in doing business internationally.
The objective of the Cultural Iceberg Workshop is to recognize and understand different cultures, their traits, and their particularities, as well as to learn how culture influences our way of doing business with others, in an effort to avoid the typical misunderstandings or stereotypes that can generally occur when different cultures meet.
This is also a great opportunity to learn useful tips to help you develop successful relationships with classmates, and colleagues while doing internships.
