Cultural differences, time difference and language barriers - many things can lead to misunderstandings and thus to difficulties. In order to interact successfully internationally, strong intercultural skills are required. Internationality, however, is not easy to learn. That is why we connect you to colleagues from Colombia, Chile and Germany. You can experience first-hand in which ways different cultures and associated ways of thinking and acting can have effects on your work. In this way you gain a high level of intercultural competence, an important success factor in addition to your professional expertise. And along the way, you will also get to know your colleagues from the partner universities.
