In many areas of study, global awareness and cultural adaptability are essential qualities for success after graduation.

GlobeSmart helps students prepare for a globalized world. By increasing self-awareness, global perspective, and cultural competency, students open many valuable doors for themselves.

“GlobeSmart is a real career accelerator – not only for our students, but for our staff and faculty too. It’s been a tremendous asset to the school. We’re thrilled to be able to use the tool and to see people dive into all the information available to them.”​

Alyson Hyman, Former Associate Director, Global Business Center, UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School

Help Students Gain a Global Perspective

Studying different cultures is one thing, understanding them is another. Equip your students with the awareness they need in the global marketplace.

With GlobeSmart, your students discover their work style preferences and compare with their peers—or people from 100 cultures. Then they receive tailored, practical advice on how to engage effectively.

“The GlobeSmart Profile helps students understand themselves and how they operate on a cultural basis. Culture shapes how you make a decision. If you can flex towards how someone else tends to make decisions, they can be much more cooperative and forthcoming.”

Professor Richard Bahner, Kean University, on preparing global business students to go abroad

Explore the World Without Leaving the Classroom

In an ideal world, all students would spend time abroad. But for many, that’s not possible. GlobeSmart can help.

The Culture Guides provide detailed information on 100 cultures around the world. For each culture, students can explore over 50 topics such as Communication Styles, Negotiating, Giving Feedback, Attitudes towards Foreigners, Women in Business and more.

“Many of my students admitted they looked up countries outside of the ones we studied in class. Not only was GlobeSmart a useful resource for my class, it also inspired my students to look beyond their course work.”

The IES is a great way to measure intercultural adaptability at the beginning and end of a course or study-abroad program.
