In today’s business world, English has achieved global status as a common language for communication among people who do not share the same native tongue. As a result, recent years have seen an increasing demand for proficient speakers of English and for highly qualified teachers of English as a foreign language. An advanced command of English alone does not ensure the success of cross-cultural business ventures. This course understands that cultural differences can create barriers during crosscultural interaction even when English is used as a common language. It thus combines a systematic approach to Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with a solid understanding of Intercultural Business Communication.

This course has an international outlook and attracts students from a wide range of cultural backgrounds.
