This course will examine cultural differences in the application of individual differences and organizational-level interventions to improve the utilization of human capital and organizational effectiveness. Research strategies and applied tools covered in earlier courses will be re-examined through a cross-cultural perspective.

This course organizes ideas in a way that students emerge from the class more “literate” in reading the often subtle, unaware operation of cultural factors in everyday life situations.
