Learning Outcomes of UE

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be  better equipped to join the global workforce and will have learned to communicate more effectively in international business settings. First, students will be prepared to apply in English: to think critically about job descriptions, positively present their own skills and personality, write effective cover letters and CVs, and successfully handle themselves during job interviews. Then, students will gain intercultural intelligence, a critical tool in the international workplace. They will learn to recognize different cultural identities and adapt their behaviour in order to avoid faux-pas and negotiate successfully.
