This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.
Briefly discuss the political, economic, legal, educational, and family systems of a country of your choice. Include a response to the following questions in your discussion:
- If your company was to do business in your chosen country, describe the reasons for using social media for business and the impact on intercultural communication?
- What kind of management orientation style (ethnocentric, polycentric, regiocentric, geocentric) would you use to be most effective given the cultural attributes of the country?
- How would you overcome the barriers to communication?
- Do you agree with the saying, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” when it comes to doing business with another country?
