Working in Multicultural Teams

Genevieve Navisotschnig, MA

An exchange semester provides rich opportunities to interact with people from other cultures and broaden perspectives. This course aims to enhance intercultural awareness so that these encounters become more valuable. The ability to work well in a multicultural environment is an increasingly sought after competence in the workplace. Students come from multiple cultural backgrounds and will be stimulated to consider the concept of culture, with a reflection on their own perspective and personal journey as a starting point. Build onto existing knowledge through sharing personal encounters, teamwork and the consideration of effective communication. Identify benefits and possible underlying causes of the challenges within multicultural teams through analyzing scenarios and case studies. Conflict will be explored through an interactive game and group discussions. Roleplay, theoretical concepts and literature will support your learning and broaden your understanding.
