The course will focus on: 1) introducing how national culture influences corporate culture; 2) recognizing cultural differences and their importance on business relationships;  3)  exploring intercultural communication;  4) learning both business etiquette and the way to negotiate; 5) analyzing the keys to improve business negotiations. This course provides a comprehensive view of Spanish business culture and behavior. Besides, real examples will be used to compare both corporate cultures and business behaviors around the world.
