Subject Description

Intercultural competence is a crucial skillset in today’s global workplace. In this subject,
students will develop their emotional intelligence and intercultural competence in class and in the workplace.
This experiential subject requires students to study and/or work with people from different cultures and countries in a business context and to reflect on their experiences. Students will be introduced to a range of theories, which they will critically evaluate before and during their intercultural experience. In most instances, students will undertake international travel as part of their experience however this is not essential.
