Dubai Day 8 – 04/01/2017

Jan 4, 2017   //   by Kora Philipp   //   Student Blog  //  No Comments

On Day 8 we visited The Higher Colleges of Technology – Dubai Women’s College. The young institution has a state-of-the-art campus spread over 350,000m2 and with 3,065 students enrolled in one of six academic programmes.

As the college was almost empty due to holiday season, there was enough space for us to visit a class on Intercultural Intelligence in the morning. For about 4 hours a teacher led us through the basic ideas of ICI which describes the capability to function effectively in culturally diverse settings and consists of different dimensions correlated to effectiveness in global environment. Intercultural intelligence is used in the business world in order to bridge the cultural divide and avoid misunderstandings that affect business. Surprisingly, every delegate has a cultural diverse background: Many of us grew up with two or even three mother tongues, lived in a foreign country or moved to another continent for their studies. Hence, it was interesting to hear what some of us had done intuitively all their lives or where confronted with in their past.

In the afternoon, our group split in those students who studied law and those who are becoming lawyers. Each had another lessons related to the U.A.E. and Dubai before we returned to the EAHM.
