Course objective:
The subject is designed as a series of the lectures and seminars focused on a variety of the mutual relations among the concepts of culture, organization and management. Within this an organization is defined as a specific cultural phenomenon on both internal as well as external level. Crucial attention is devoted to a systematic management - analysis, development, change, monitoring etc. - of organizational culture. All of these questions are studied from two different perspectives - a local/national view as well as international/global one. A stress is given not only on an explanation and mediation of the most important concepts and knowledge but also on an active development of the students' cross-cultural competence.
