This one-day session is a hands-on workshop. Apart from small lecture-units it gives plenty of room for group-discussions as well as individual exchange in break-out groups. Students are invited to reflect on their own cultural background by individual as well as group exercises. Simulations, small film clips and case studies will help to bridge the gap between theoretical framework and business strategies strategies including best practices and lessons learned.
