What is it and how do you teach it?
“How can students build connections with people in ways which respect cultural traditions and allow for reciprocal, mutually beneficial relationships to develop in their future occupations and workplaces?” The University of Canterbury in New Zealand has a core level course on Business and Culture that invites students to reflect on their own participation in multiple cultural forms: ethics, occupational, gendered, national, digital, global, temporal etc. A focus of the course is students understanding the culture of New Zealand’ Indigenous Maori in contemporary workplaces and how it underpins the management of resources in New Zealand. The course also looks at political and regulatory influences on business and the economy.
