In times of globalization, it is hard to imagine academic and professional life without multicultural interactions. Intercultural competence is the key to operating effectively in intercultural contexts. The Seminar provides the participants with the competence to act in an international environment, in particular of intercultural contacts and solutions for the cross-culture challenges of everyday life. In our interactive seminar, you will have the opportunity to learn more about cultural values which might influence and impact your experience.
The aim of the workshop/ seminar is to sensitize the participants to other "ways of doing", other values, behavior, in cultural overlapping contexts.
