Between the University of Applied Sciences, Laurea (Finland) and Universidad EAN (Colombia), a Global Virtual Module of Intercultural and Global Leadership will be undertaken. In this module you will learn about cultural diversity and how it aects modern-day work life in the globalized world of work. You will get to know some of the key elements of working internationally and interculturally, in both virtual and face-to-face teams. Also, the challenges of intercultural leadership will be explored. Although this is part of a Unit of Study of both Universities, since it will be supported through Blackboard, other members of the Humanistic Management Network can participate.
