Cultural Awareness for Global Business
We live in an increasingly multicultural and global business environment. More and more professionals need to know how to adeptly interact with people of other cultures, both from their own companies and from other companies.
Accordingly, we at MIT Professional Education have launched a program to help professionals thrive and operate effectively in this context of cultural diversity: Cultural Awareness for Global Business.
We want to equip you with the tools necessary to help your businesses and advance your careers. In this program, you will learn about culture’s enormous impact on how we see the world, so that you can learn to solve problems and to avoid needless, counterproductive misunderstandings when working with people from different cultural backgrounds.

We are available to answer any questions you might have.
Thanks to this online program, participants will:
Learn about the concept of culture and its relationship to language and communication.
See why and how the cultures in our professional environments differ from each other.
Discover how and why cultural differences impact the global economy.
Find out how to successfully conduct business in a multicultural setting.
Learn to avoid common communication problems that are caused by culturally-shaped differences in expected etiquette and nonverbal communication practices.
Cultural Awareness in Global Business is a multidisciplinary online program that is relevant across industries and sectors. It is relevant to professionals in a wide variety of positions and in companies of many sizes. In short, it is tailored to any professional looking to develop her or his abilities to perform satisfactorily in cross-cultural environments, especially international business environments.
“Learning by doing” Methodology
Our programs are highly collaborative; they feature discussion forums and group activities. Our programs are also practical and results- driven. Professionals get hands-on learning experience and they acquire skills and tools that they can immediately use to benefit their organizations and their careers.
This program is completely online
The virtual campus is available at any time and is accessible from any place. It is a continuous learning space without the limitations of a traditional classroom.
You can learn more about the program methodology and evaluation criteria in the brochure.
At MIT Professional Education, we are committed to accompanying organizations as they aspire to provide their professionals with the ongoing education critical for success in today’s competitive environment.
That’s why we offer plans for companies who wish to train their professionals with us:
All participants who successfully complete the program will receive an MIT Professional Education Certificate of Completion.
Participants will also receive 2 Continuing Education Units (CEU) after filling out a required accreditation form. These CEUs are calculated for each course based on the number of learning hours.

Fire Hydrant Award
Jerome Wiesner, former president of MIT (1971-1980), described the experience of studying at MIT as “drinking from a fire hydrant.” Life and learning at MIT require firmness, constancy and a great deal of determination. Our professional programs attempt to instill these competencies.
Thus, the Fire Hydrant Award was born. It recognizes those who demonstrate their dedication to learning, their ability to put knowledge into practice, and their adherence to core MIT values, including: excellence, courage, humility, curiosity, a passion for solving problems, and a desire to improve society.
Bhaskar Pant is the Executive Director of MIT Professional Education, the arm of MIT that provides technical professionals a gateway to MIT expertise.
Under his leadership, MIT Professional Education has substantially increased the number of corporate relationships that it maintains, and the number of programs that it offers. Professionals from more than 120 countries participate in its on-campus, international, online and hybrid programs, which cover topics ranging from AI and biotech to real estate and leadership. This global expansion is linked to Mr. Pant’s service on the MIT President’s Task Force on ‘The Future of Education at MIT’ – he contributed to the sub-committee on ‘Bringing MIT to the World.’
Prior to joining MIT, Mr. Pant held senior leadership positions in academic and corporate organizations around the globe.
The experience I acquired in the program was very enriching because it allowed us to understand from a human perspective the changes of the new revolution 4.0, where technologies are infinite, but it will be people who generate these changes, with a change first in how they work. I see digital transformation as a catalyst for profound changes in the way we interact with our main stakeholders.
I would recommend this course to more people!

The impact of what I learned thanks to this training will be tremendously positive: It will be a facilitator of change and an injection of energy and new ideas for my whole team and my peers, and it will improve openness to new ideas and technologies. This course far surpassed my goal.

The experience was extremely enriching. I have met many professionals from differetn places, and the feedback I obtained is invaluable.
Pedro José Guerrero Escobar

I’m really very happy with everything I’ve learned. Getting an MIT Professional Education Certificate is very relevant. After finishing this training I plan to do a project in the company where I work and lead a training session with my colleagues.
Edison Herrera Álvarez
– Dynamics CRM Senior Consultant –
My experience with the course was very positive, I recommend it. I have acquired valuable knowledge and skills to improve my effectiveness at work or to tutor and prepare others.
Silvana Cisneros López
– Big Data Project Manager –
I think it was like those booster shots of vaccines that we were given when we were little: Even if you have the knowledge, it helps to remind ourselves of the basics. We have to force ourselves to continue learning. It has helped me to remember that it is imperative to be constantly updated and with my eyes wide open so as not to miss any opportunity. And it has also reaffirmed my opinion that we should not always be satisfied with “standard” solutions, but that we must innovate.
