Research in multi-cultural communication and intercultural competencies has a long tradition in the Faculty of Business Administration at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund. This research is linked to the study programmes in International Business implemented about 20 years ago and is linked to the partners in the International Business programmes.

In this module we want to focus on Intercultural Competencies and look forward to discussions with colleagues from partners and further universities.
