Abstract: In October 2010, Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that Germany's attempt to create a multicultural society has failed (Reuters: online). Integration wane and protectionism is on the increase while most countries in the world face the issue of recruiting skilled workers on an international scale.

In a world that is increasingly reliant on knowledge production and generation, the concern that multiculturalism may be failing is profound. This investigation focuses on multinational corporations with the objectives of attempting to determine whether multiculturalism is alive and well or failing and, if so, how 'global competence' may be valued and considered important. Within the analysis, educational programs that are designed to boost 'global competence' and improve multicultural relationships within the workforce are described and assessed.
