Course Aims

Given societal stakeholders (Government, employers, workers, educators, and students) increasingly recognize intercultural competency as being a crucial part of one’s repertoire of human capital skills in this contemporary globalized world, the nurturing of interculturally competent graduates therefore becomes an important and meaningful goal of educational institutions. Developing and ensuring the intercultural competence of the next generation of managers and leaders in our society are vital to sustaining the prosperity, international relevance and standing of Hong Kong. Thus Globalization is embedded into CityU’s strategic plans, with the goal to “Enhance students’ international perspectives, global awareness and multicultural sensitivity”. In support of such aims, this course is designed to: inspire students’ engagement in study abroad; allow them to discover their own levels of intercultural intelligence; assist their preparation for their overseas experience on how to maximise this valuable prospect of a potentially life-transforming opportunity, through various stimulating and interactive learning activities.
