    1st semester
  • Length


Lots of PhD students come from another country, and several Belgian PhD students work in an
intercultural environment and will themselves go abroad later.
In this 1 day interactive course we explore how you can get to know our foreign colleagues a bit
better and learn from each other. We take out time to get to know each other in this workshop too.
The key is that you always meet a person, not a culture.

On the program:
– cultural dimensions
– discussing cases with 3 models for intercultural communication
– testing your ability to adapt to different communication styles
You get the opportunity to look up your own personal profile according to the 8 cultural dimensions
of Erin Meyer (INSEAD Business School).
We also introduce a different model, one that in contrast to most, does not focus on culture, but on
communication and this on meeting people, not cultures.
