Business with China is on the increase. Beyond the dos and don'ts of cultural etiquette, more and more business professionals are recognising the need for a deeper understanding of Chinese culture and values to engage in long-term and successful business relationships.
This three week short course will introduce you to some core Chinese cultural beliefs and values, highlighting potential challenges and sharing stories and reflections from westerners who have lived and worked in China. By focusing on some key aspects of Chinese culture and introducing some useful language expressions, the course will equip you to manage intercultural encounters successfully and make a long standing and positive impression. As part of the course you will complete your own Learning journal which will help you consider and reflect upon a number of cultural scenarios. Download the Learning journal from the link below onto your own device.
