Hall’s approach, and Lewis’ model, as well as national and business cultures of different countries. The practical aspect of the course gives an opportunity to acquire skills essential for communicating in cross-cultural situations, such as meetings, negotiations, working in multicultural teams and making presentations for audiences with various cultural backgrounds.
