Without communication, business would not be possible. That is why it is critically important to understand how communication influences the world of business. And in order to properly understand communication, one needs to know the interrelationship of culture and communication because in the words of Edward T. Hall, "culture is communication, and communication is culture."

The Program of Business and Intercultural Communication (BIC) examines the interrelation of culture and communication in a business context.  In addition to providing a theoretical foundation for the study of culture and communication, the program examines its practical application in the working world.
