Applications in the following areas and with the following proposed supervisory teams are especially welcome:
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.
