Cross cultural
Management

1
English
In the first part of the course, the focus is put on different models of
cross-cultural research which inform us on concepts to use when working
with the manifestations of cultural differences. These models and their
concepts are elaborated by using them to discuss differences between
Belgium and other European cultures on the one hand, and between
Belgium and African, Asian and Arabic cultures on the other hand. In the
second part, the focus is put on cultural differences relating to specific
management contexts. Successively, we focus on human resources
management (hiring, motivation, performance appraisal and feedback,
rewarding, career counseling), negotiations, business ethics, conflict
resolution and leadership, within the context of international
management.

overview of the birth and grow of the Union will help to understand the
problems of this institution. The course will tackle the tensions due to
enlargement, the gap between an intergovernmental and supra national
approach and the question how to organize the cooperation between the
EU countries. An overview of the different EU institutions will be
completed with a visit at the EU parliament and the EU commission.
European Policies

According to some studies 80 per cent of the EU member states’ socioeconomic legislation is shaped by the EU. In this course we bring the
students up to date with a range of core policy challenges facing the
European Union, and the ways in which they are being addressed. This
course is not about how the EU functions but what it tries to achieve by
its different policies. The aim is to provide a detailed picture of the
diversity of EU policy-making across a range of policy domains, to
identify predominant patterns, and characteristic styles and trends over
time.
