The fith edition of Intercultural Management Congress was devoted to intercultural management – the phenomenon that is a very current and at the same time a timeless one. It is current because of the fact that in the area of business, not only global anymore but local as well, cultural diversity becomes everyday life. And it is timeless due to the fact that management truly is a vital and inseparable part of the life of every organization.
In contemporary global environment of international business, culture and differences arising from culture play an immense role. If we want to be effective as organizations and individuals acting within their frameworks we have to learn to think and manage in a culturally competent way. We should get to know cultural values and differences, barriers and problems stemming from them. In order to become competitive organizations require certain tools which will allow them to use the ubiquitous cultural heterogeneity effectively.We met to talk about issues of intercultural management mathodology and research, multicultural leadership, corporate culture and intercultural communication.
We were very impressed with the quality of papers and presentations as well as lively discussions that followed the speeches.

We explored topics and ideas on corporate culture, intercultural communication and leadership in globalized world

IV INTERCULTURAL MANAGEMENT CONGRESS
III edition of Intercultural Management Congress
I found particularly interesting the presentation by our Russian colleagues from Astrakhan State University. Prof. Tatiana Mordasova discussed the changing relations among the ethnic groups of the Astrakhan region and the roles of their business specialties in maintaining peace among the various groups of the region. She also commented on the disturbance of the traditional tolerance as a result of recent immigration.
It was also a pleasure to see the presentations by the students of the Clark University graduate programs in Poland. I feel a certain pride as a teacher as a new generation of scholars emerge from our classrooms to take their place among their teachers to contribute to their own research areas of interest.
I encourage all who share our interest in intercultural management to join us for the next Congress in 2010.
