How bicultural knowledge, skills, abilities and other experiences impact organisations and entrepreneurism

Research Briefing

Keywords: bicultural skills, biculturalism, entrepreneurial orientation, biculturals monocultural, organisational culture

Due to ever-increasing human mobility, the internationalization of trade and business and relatively large-scale relocation, there is a growing issue around biculturalism. Biculturalism refers to a situation whereby an individual from one culture, country or region relocates and adapts to the culture of a new host country or culture in a manner whereby they are comfortable and can operate effectively in both cultural settings.

Previous studies found that biculturalism can promote cognitive, affective (emotional and values/beliefs) and skills flexibility and adaptability that are not always witnessed in bilingual or monocultural individuals.
