This module will provide you with an understanding of key aspects of Chinese culture and their business implications, and it will also help you to interact effectively and get things done.
China has become one of the major strategic development markets worldwide. Nowadays it is more important than ever to work closely with Chinese collaborators, in order to attract and retain local talent and to understand customers intimately in order to further access and develop market potential. These objectives require a high degree of intercultural competence, for everybody in the organisation who interacts in someway with Chinese colleagues and partners.

“The workshop was extremely informative yet entertaining and tended very well to my individual needs. Mrs. Müller provided lots of personal experience and made the subjects come to life.
