This Open Universities Australia and RMIT University unit offers you the opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the challenges of Managing Across Cultures. The unit is divided into three segments: challenges facing global managers; developing global management skills; and developing global understanding. Though globalisation has offered up a plethora of business opportunities, it could also be said that it has increased the complexities associated with management practices.
