Culture and Communication

Global Culture Corner 1.0

Multicultural Competencies for Global Leaders

‘Footprints in the Heart’




The ability to communicate effectively across cultures requires multicultural competencies. These include cultural awareness, sensitivity and intelligence, and mindful intercultural communication, among others. Global Culture Corner is a series of online programmes curated for students of higher learning to help them enhance their skills as global leaders. It is a student-centred interactive platform for students to network with students from other countries, to share and learn about cultures.


At the end of the programme, students should be able to

i.                 learn about other culture’s values, norms and expectations

ii.               talk about their own culture to people of other cultures

iii.             interact and network with students of other cultures
