Ep 31 Adapting to a Foreign Culture Abroad with Dr. Yusuf J. Ugras

This episode is a full circle moment for me in training about Work Cultures. I interviewed my former professor, Dr Yusuf Ugras, Ph.D who is faculty with the MBA program at La Salle University Philadelphia and has consulted for several multinational organizations and educational institutions on working professionals and international audiences. Dr. Ugras brings over 30 years of academic experience.

He has made presentations at various conferences including UPCEA, AACSB International, Mid Atlantic Association of Colleges of Business Administration (MAACBA), American Accounting Association, European Management Accounting Conference, Management Accounting Research Symposia, and Philadelphia Controllers Conference. 

He has also provided assistance to several universities in improving their adult, and graduate programming. He has served as President of the American Accounting Association – Mid-Atlantic Region, as well as several positions with the Institute of Management Accountants. Most recently, he has served in the leadership positions with University Professional Continuing Education Association and American International Recruitment Council.

Dr U! As we fondly call him discusses how to adapt to foreign cultures.

  • Because you are most likely to encounter people from that culture.
  • He reminds us that with globalization and international companies having teams around the world, you don't have to travel to another country to experience their culture but interacting with your coworkers who comes from a foreign culture is another way to experience that culture and how that can improve your productivity
