Cross-cultural Communication in Business

7.5 credits

How we do business in an international context is highly influenced by culture. This course takes a close look at language, communication and interpersonal interaction to analyse and understand how our cultural identity is formed and expressed in various business settings. An important part of the course is to reflect critically on how our own cultural identity both enable and constrain interaction when doing business in other cultures.


In Kalmar, Linnaeus University is located in the city centre. Universitetskajen is entirely newly-built and located just next to the sea. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

The city centre is also where most students live. Everything is available within a ten-minute bicycle ride, regardless of whether you want to take a swim in the sea, study, do some shopping, or work out. Historical buildings and cobblestone streets give charm to the city. When it is sunny, the area next to Kalmar Castle’s moat is filled with studying and sunbathing students. Student life is a natural part of Kalmar. This is where your dream of the future begins!
