Synopsis:

At the heart of this course is an intercultural exchange which students will conduct online in Global Virtual Teams (GVTs) with students of Business and Economics of Dublin City University(Ireland), Masaryk University (Czech Republic), Padeborn University (Germany) and Tampere University of Applied Sciences (Finland). Working in culturally mixed virtual teams and using English as their lingua franca, students will complete tasks collaboratively and present joint results at the end of the exchange in the form of a report and a video presentation. They will apply analysis of cross-cultural frameworks in business context - a product, service, company or business process. Theoretical input on working in GVTs forms the basis of class sessions and feeds into students' GVT projects. In the final part of the course, students draw on the exchange experience and aspects of GVT theory to write individually a paper.
