ICCM conducts both basic and applied research on the important topics facing modern organization in a global economy. We concentrate on issues that affect daily business conduct such as cross-cultural communication, negotiation across cultures, and managing multicultural work groups.
In addition, ICCM has developed programmatic research examining key strategic issues such as structuring multinational organizations, expatriation/repatriation, and global leadership. ICCM research is conducted by our faculty of Ph.D. level psychologists and master’s level practitioners who have decades of experience in the complex methodological challenges of cross-cultural research.
Our faculty also collaborates with our well-developed network of cross cultural researchers and partner institutions around the world bringing a true international presence to our research environment.
- At ICCM, we literally work around the clock through our network of researcher and global partners. These strong partnerships allow us access to firsthand knowledge of cultures around the world. In addition, through our partner network we can collect data to address important theoretical and applied cultural questions.
Publications and Conferences
- ICCM researchers are active members of the scholarly community, regularly publish in top journals, and present our findings at conferences around the world. The strength of our research background benefits our science, and our partners. The knowledge we gain through research is translated into practical interventions that demonstrate measurable benefits to organizations.
