The University of Wollongong Faculty of Business’s newest research centre, the Centre for Cross-Cultural Management (CCCM), was officially opened on Friday, 27 September.
Cross-cultural management involves managing work teams in ways that considers the differences in cultures, practices and preferences of individuals within an organisation in a global business context.
Leading US academic Distinguished Professor Wayne Cascio, Robert H. Reynolds Chair in Global Leadership at the University of Colorado, Denver, delivered the keynote speech at the launch event. A world-renowned expert in management and human resources, Professor Cascio also took part in a panel discussion.
The Centre will promote interdisciplinary research into the influence of culture on human relations, work-related outcomes, interpersonal experience, and identity construction in organisational settings.
