Strategies for Cross-Cultural Facilitation and Negotiation

CMN 6085 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Examines several cultural theories, such as Hofstede’s national cultural dimensions, Hall and Hall’s contextual levels, along with Kluckhohn and Strodtbeck’s variations in value orientations. Offers students an opportunity to acquire skills to move from gut reactions to applying empirically tested methods for cultural interactions and diplomacy. Culture is being defined as a group of people with shared values and means of being. Includes case studies and role play with a variety of diverse groups from intergenerational, international, racial, and religious. Also offers students an opportunity to strengthen their diplomacy and public speaking skills practicing both verbal and nonverbal communication skills. The written signature assignment is to design a communication collateral that meets the needs of stakeholders from two different cultures (include different languages/wording). Supports collateral differences based on cultural theories and evidence.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
