Cross-Cultural Leadership: Course Description

This graduate-level course is taught by Pat Bentley, Senior Lecturer at the Sloan School of Management, as a collaborative (students contribute content) seminar. Student teams research an area of cultural difference (based on assigned readings) in order to determine how it would affect leadership. Teams present the result of their research in class. Seminar topics include cultural styles and social dimensions. Readings focus on cross-cultural business, management and leadership. The course concludes with discussions of what makes leaders effective in multiple cultures.

The OpenCourseWare version includes extensive and useful lecture notes and assignment descriptions for all classes. To take this free course on leading businesses that span two or more distinct cultures, go to the 'Cross-Cultural Leadership' course page.
