The proposed thesis will explain not only the effect of culture on the management of multinational corporations, but also the necessity for the continuation of research into cultural aspects and the way they relate to management. Along with this I will delve into ways of preparing managers for overseas assignments. Many of the 500 leading enterprises in the world operate primarily outside their own countries. This will present quite a challenge to managers all over the world, to create optimal conditions for developing and utilizing available human resources. Relatively speaking, the research done in this subject matter is just beginning. Unfortunately, this area of study has been sadly neglected. Too often, managers expect people to respond to rules, regulations and directives the same way in one culture as in another. Understanding the complexity of operating in other cultures and understanding individual cultural differences is a vast endeavor to undertake. Nevertheless, it is vital to the existence of the business world. Through my thesis, I will hope to magnify the need for a constant and deeper awareness of this issue.
