Über den Kurs

Europe now has 500 million consumers and is the world's largest single market. It is also one of the world's most culturally diverse markets. This can make it a very worthwhile environment to work in but difficult to navigate. Miscommunication and lack of leadership skills are cited among of the main reasons why European projects fail. As a leader, you not only need to be aware of cultural differences, you also need to effectively set a management tone and style that is open and adaptable to a range of cultural perspectives. Join this course and gain the skills you need to become a great leader in an international organisation.

What will I learn in this course?
