Cross-cultural issues in doing international business

We will examine the complex issues that international business managers face when creating international assignments. Here, we review recruitment and selection issues associated with international assignments, discussing both the prescriptive models found in the expatriate literature and the circumstances that seem to persist in practice. We consider expatriate adjustment during the assignment and describe organizational support upon repatriation. We will critically reflect on the concept of expatriate failure and outlines a multidimensional perspective on assignment success. 

We will look into:

  • the complexity of international assignments
  • how to prepare for an international assignment
  • cost-benefits issues in international assignment
