Welcome to the website of the Excellence Centre for Intercultural Management, Diversity and Inclusion at ESCP Business School! The goal of our institution is to deepen the understanding of intercultural, diversity and inclusion-related issues in organisations and to translate the latest scientific insights into practice.
Nowadays, global managers have to take account of regional or country-specific cultural characteristics, as neglecting these social peculiarities might result ultimately in failed business strategies and economic loss. At the same time, the workforce has grown increasingly diverse and leaders and employees have to work with people from countries other than their own. In order to navigate successfully the challenges associated with these developments, managers and organisations have to acquire a sophisticated and comprehensive intercultural understanding.
The Excellence Centre for Intercultural Management aims at supporting these needs by helping students and professionals develop their intercultural competences. We offer innovative learning formats that enable individuals to become culturally competent global leaders. In addition, we conduct high-profile academic and practice-oriented research projects in the field of intercultural management, and aim at collaborating with a large network of academics and organisations.
