Value Differences
Many of you are bursting with enthusiasm and energy and can’t wait to start your first international assignment. But wait, there is more that needs to be acquired and developed in order to be successful working in the international arena. Your technical expertise alone won’t cut it, I’m afraid. This presentation will explore the cultural dimensions that each and every one of us will have to master to be an effective member of a multicultural and multinational team.

  • The TCoB Study Abroad Department is the organizer for this event. This organizer is working with the PDP office to have PDP points awarded for students who successfully participate in their event; therefore, procedures for event registration, check-in, timeline for processing PDP points and other event details may be different from typical in-person PDP sessions. Please refer to information in the body of this calendar event and/or emails from the event organizer for possible further information and/or instructions. Important note: while some details may vary, there will be no change from the PDP Programming Syllabus regarding (1) the students’ responsibility to take appropriate steps to have their presence documented in order for attendance to officially be recorded (2) specifics for the minimum attire requirement, and (3) students will have 5 business days after the event date to dispute points awarded/not awarded.

This session takes students beyond the foundational knowledge gained in the BA course series (BA 1500, BA 2500, BA 3500) and helps students prepare for BA 4500 internship course opportunities and the professional world beyond.
