About Communication

About Us

The recent, transnational flow of people, financial resources, goods, information and culture have proved to be challenging for both societies and organizations to understand cultural implications of these flows in hopes for better interaction with other cultures and more efficient management of international organizations. It is strongly advocated that achieving success in this competitive and complex business ecosystem, is closely tied to the ability of employees and managers to navigate through different cultural nuances and communicate effectively with myriad and diverse stakeholders. Communication is essential in all areas of business, from client relationships to branding and from team-building to productivity and efficiency. Direct, comprehensible and coherent communication in today’s multifaceted environment, is necessary to drive the success of an organization. The Communication Area at FORE School of Management is defined by its commitment to both students and corporate to learn the importance of global communication and implementing effective communications policies that are key to helping a global organization thrive in this new ecosystem. They provide them deeper understanding of basic communication processes like nonverbal communication, perception, and listening, as well as communication in various contexts including interpersonal, group, intercultural, and media communication and help them manage their own cross-cultural behaviour as well as that of others.
