Managing People and Resources in Cross-Cultural Context

This course prepares students to manage people and financial resources in programs, departments, or projects of moderate size and complexity. Course activities examine the complexities of staff and budget management in international and cross-cultural contexts. Specifically, students will learn about job description development, advertisement, inclusive selection processes, inclusivity, and ethics, managing remote teams, theory and practice of budgeting, and cost analysis. To manage resources effectively, managers must be able to establish trust, motivate staff, make difficult decisions, and communicate across cultural and organizational contexts. These critical skills are emphasized in this course.
