Challenges of Intercultural Encounters and Identity-Construction in international business management and multicultural organisations - (Supervisors: David Guttormsen<> and Annie Pye<>)

Organisations encompass increasingly diverse multicultural workforces where cultural influence may significantly impinge on cross-border operations and performance. The new business landscape only intensifies these challenges: the shift of the economic centre of gravity to Asian growth markets and other emerging economies in untrodden cultural terrains for Western companies. We invite proposals for PhD research in the field of cultural identities and intercultural challenges faced daily by expatriates which may lead to 'failed' international assignments.
