Truth to be told, I have never been an expert or a big fan of Chinese classic philosophy. Growing up abroad, I have studied more about Plato or Aristotle rather than Confucius or Laozi. Still, I was not truly excited about taking humanity courses at the university since almost everything sounded too profound for me. But when I was browsing the courses description, something captured my attention: Laozi.

With the increasing number of Sino-foreign cooperations and more and more Chinese enterprises investing abroad, the ability to manage cross-cultural differences becomes critical. This paper discusses the standing of cross-cultural management (CCM) in China. A study was carried out that examines cultural awareness and cognitive cultural intelligence (cognitive CQ) among undergraduate Chinese business students as well as the impact of university CCM courses on both aspects. Findings suggest that Chinese undergraduate business students are moderately well culturally aware and they exhibit an average cognitive CQ. Moreover, both parameters positively correlate with academic CCM courses.
The modern China is not the once isolated Eastern civilization, but certainty a mix of diverse cultures. Taking a historical detour back to 1637, a year when the British first stepped-foot on the breath-taking yet agitating land of GuangZhou, the unfamiliar language of English was exposed to the Cantonese speaking natives.
