Managing Language in International Organizations

The aim of this course is to enable students acquire knowledge of the role of language in various management activities in international organizations. This is achieved in the light of the cognitive link between language and corporate culture, namely the concept of company-speak. In international, multilingual settings, company-speak can be managed as a real asset and not just as a secondary, instrumental factor.
