Global Intelligence

Fall 2020  | H238

Global Intelligence partners IU students with Burmese resettled refugees and with college students at the National Management Degree Program in Myanmar.

Comparing Burmese nationals’ perspectives to those of Burmese immigrants exemplifies diversity within cultures. Students develop a global mindset and a deeper understanding of the refugee resettlement experience, and learn to recognize cultural signals and bridge cultural gaps. Through self-reflection and working in a multi-cultural situation, students learn their own cultural proclivities and practice empathy.
