The paper 'Culture Diversity - Burma " is a good example of a management case study. It has become like a routine that most people take a one year break before they join a college or a university, or after completion. It is increasingly becoming popular among graduating students. Taking a break is helpful to an individual in various ways. First, the break gives the individual a chance to view life from a different and fresh perspective. During the break, one can have an adventure and travel to another country where they can grow and experience a different challenge physically, emotionally as well as intellectually.
One can also learn a new culture and a language during the break (McKeown, 2009). Traveling to another country is important since one leans a new culture. In fact, studying abroad can be highly beneficial. The student gains a new perspective of life, increases the knowledge of another country’ s language as well as offers the individual intercultural development. After college, it is highly recommended that one first work as a volunteer before seeking employment. This gives the graduate a chance to gain work experience (McKeown, 2009).
One improves their employability since they have a chance to learn some skills which they never learned in college. This paper discusses cultural diversity. It focuses on understanding and knowing more about Burma. Description of the Country When one moves to a new country, it is important that they first learn its history. This will be helpful in quick adaptation to the new culture and the new environment. Burma also referred to as Myanmar is a country in Southeast Asia with a history spreading back about 13 000 years ago.
The first inhabitants of the country are known to be the Pyu and the Mon. The other group that settled in the 9th century was the Mranma also known as the Burmans (Tarling, 1999). The country was colonized by the British and has been in civil wars since its independence. Today, the country is among the least developed and is unstable due to civil wars which remain unresolved to date. It has been under military rule since 1962 (Tarling, 1999).
