The course gives an overview of different theories on (business) leadership, the influence of globalization and culture in an international setting. In a globalized world management and leadership become more internationally oriented too. Different cultures around the globe lack a universal management style and firms expanding into new geographical areas do not always realize this. Our colleagues from Rhodes University, South Africa will focus on questions like: Does global leadership really exist or is it a myth? Can management from one part of the world resolve conflicts that arise in other regions? 

The interactive course gives an overview of different theories on (business) leadership, the influence of globalization and culture in an international setting. In a globalized world management and leadership become more internationally oriented too. The different cultures around the globe do not have one universal management style and firms expanding into new geographical areas do not always realize this. 

The aim of the course is to give an overview of different theories on (business) leadership and the influence of globalization and culture. Using in-class exercises students get hands-on experience with the course topics. A selection of academic articles will be studied and discussed in class.
