Intercultural Communication for Business is direct, simple, and compact. Dr. Elizabeth Tuleja of the Mendoza College of Business examines what it means to communicate in a diverse workplace – whether at home or abroad.

This book looks both broadly and specifically at issues and opportunities that are increasingly important as the business world shrinks and grows more interdependent. As time zones blur and fewer restrictions are imposed on the global movement of capital, raw materials, finished goods, and human labor, people will cling fiercely to the ways in which they were enculturated in their early years of development and socialization.

In order to become more effective in daily interactions at work, home or abroad, it is essential that people develop a keen awareness and understanding of the differences that exist regarding human values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviors. In today’s global workplace, we must be able to embrace such differences and acknowledge them as opportunities for learning and enrichment rather than forces for confusion and trouble.
