Build your Cultural Intelligence (CQ) - a key skill set for the 21st Century.

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is a set of valuable skills enabling you to manage culturally diverse settings confidently, whether at university, in daily life, or the workplace. Enhancing your CQ increases your chances of finding rewarding employment and fosters effective communication in new and unfamiliar settings. 

CQ goes beyond awareness. "Knowing about cultural differences is not enough to be able to navigate the differences."

There are three possibilities for you to further develop your Cultural Intelligence. The choice is yours.
