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.

Fire Hydrant Award | MIT Professional Education

MIT Professional Education
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.
