Cross-cultural training for business: Current state of the art and bibliography

Document Type

Report or White Paper

Publication Date





A review of current research and research needs in cross-cultural training for business and a bibliography are presented. Future research should look at the world market that exists beyond traditional countries engaging in international trade. Business opportunities are available elsewhere, but American businessmen are ill-prepared to take advantage of those opportunities. Such research might focus on challenging hypotheses, finding new data sources, or taking an interdisciplinary view of aspects of international management. The methodology of research on business culture should be further developed. The bibliography contains citations of journal and periodical articles, book articles, and books on cross-cultural training for business culled from a database search by computer and library collections.
