Cross-Cultural Competencies for Managing Int'l Partners

Every year, thousands of university representatives attend the NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo, the largest international education event of its kind. Much of their time consists of building new partnerships and maintaining long-standing relationships with colleagues from around the world. After the conference ends, navigating and managing successful international partner relations, though, is as much about cross-cultural fluency as it is about logistics and academic coursework.

In this NAFSA e-Learning Seminar, presenters will elaborate on how to effectively use intercultural communication skills for successful partnerships and how to train staff to bring the same perspectives to their communication with partners. Presenters will also discuss best practices for cross-cultural communication.
