HAGHIRIAN Parissa

Professor
Japanese Management, Cross-cultural Management and Communication

Research and Teaching Interests:
My research interest focuses on how organizations and corporations operate in Japan. I investigate differences between Japanese and Western management processes and how national culture influences them. My newest research projects deal with cross-cultural management issues and how managers of different nations cooperate with each other. One topic of interest are bicultural employees and how they build their careers in multinational firms. At the faculty of Liberal Arts I teach various management courses such as Principles of Management, HR Management and Management in Japan.
