  • You will have gained an insight into aspects of Dutch culture and how these relate to your own and other cultures.

  • You will be familiar with the Dutch labour market and have the skills to secure the position you want.
Content
In the minor in Dutch Language, Culture and Communication, you will delve into various aspects of Dutch language and culture. The course Dutch (Business) Culture and Labour market will help you prepare for success in Dutch and international learning and working environments.

In this course, you will discover various aspects of Dutch culture. You will learn what culture is, explore the different layers of culture and how it affects how people react and interactions with others. We will examine various dimensions of culture based on theory and translate these into work-related aspects such as cooperation, feedback, decision-making and leadership. You will gain an insight into your own actions, assumptions and behaviour and how these relate to other cultures and Dutch culture.
We will apply this knowledge to various corporate cultures. You will investigate and analyse the culture of various Dutch companies and organisations. You will then identify the culture that most appeals to you and the environment that would suit you best. We will then link this to developments on the Dutch labour market and the skills needed to be successful.
