The competences (knowledge, skills, and values) required to work in different regions of the world are different to a greater extend. The cases of failures of expatriate managers in foreign assignments and corporate alliances are found in abundance in the existing literature on international business and management. This demands that the business schools offer educational programs that are regionally focused and culturally inclusive. Even though such student-centered and culturally focused programs may cost the institutions in the short term, such strategic actions may be a source of competitive advantage for many of them. In this chapter, the human resource management culture in the Middle East is discussed to exemplify how national and corporate cultures vary from region to region and thus influence the management competences to work in a particular region, nation, or culture.
