    La capacité de comprendre des situations interculturelles et de s’y adapter est appelée compétence interculturelle. Au cours des dernières années, ce concept de compétence interculturelle a acquis de plus en plus d’importance, essentiellement au niveau des contacts globaux entre les entreprises et organisations diverses ; la capacité de pouvoir communiquer avec succès devient de plus en plus désirée dans le monde entier. Le but de ce travail est de donner un véritable contenu à la notion de compétence interculturelle et de montrer ses conditions d’émergence et de proposer aux entreprises des outils susceptibles d’obtenir une plus grande efficacité dans ce domaine. Pour ce, une enquête a été réalisée auprès de quelques entreprises en Tunisie ayant une expérience internationale significative.
