Culture, differences, adjustment... Is there still room for such things in our globalized world? Since companies have grown beyond national boundaries, this question has become a crucial issue for multinational enterprises.

This thesis analyzes the impact of gender on expatriate managers’ adjustment to international assignments and its implications for cross-cultural training policies. For that reason 20 informal interviews with female and male expatriate managers in Singapore were conducted.
