New Resource for International Travelers
MIT travelers now have access to GlobeSmart, an online resource providing instant access to detailed information on how to work effectively across cultures. This new tool provides information on how to conduct business in more than 95 countries with tips on business protocols, (including introductions and exchanging business cards), using interpreters, and business ethics.
The Global Advice section of the portal covers topics such as Tips for Effective Global Communication, Advice for Managers working Globally, and dealing with Culture Shock and Re-Entry.
An MIT certificate is required to access GlobeSmart. Go to the International Coordinating Committee (ICC) website for more information and to log in.
