Internship: Understanding the American Workplace

Course Number: MGT X499.1

8 units

To be an effective employee in America you need to understand how the organizational system works, have a clear understanding of your assigned roles and responsibilities, and how they relate to the organizations goals. In this course participants will explore the culture of work and compare the American work culture to the work culture in their home country. Over a 12-week period participants will investigate a specific US organization through workplace observation. The course will give participants the opportunity to share and discuss weekly observations of the American workplace and develop "soft skills" such as team work, problem-solving, and decision making. Participants will also discuss common work-related issues and develop skills in leadership, communication and time management to prepare for their future career.
