Because of ever-expanding markets and new possibilities for collaboration, studying business nowadays often means thinking internationally. Knowing the right ways to approach a culture, both in everyday interactions and within businesses, can make you either a success within a new cultural environment, or sink you for not having properly investigated the ins and outs of a society that’s new to you. The Kwintessential Business Etiquette Guide can start you on the right track for a myriad of different countries. Their country profiles will get you familiarized with the basics with information on customs, values and cultural practices. The doing business guides go a bit more specific into business etiquette, and introductory language phrases in numerous languages will help you begin the steps of building communication. They even have some fun videos on business etiquette for different cultures.
