ZHAW International Day
International Day 2020
Our next International Day will take place on Monday, 30 March 2020. You are invited to participate in our evening event at the Casinotheater Winterthur.
Cross-cultural communication and cooperation
Globalised societies, industries and markets call for cross-cultural awareness, knowledge and skills. They require the ability to cross borders. This begins when we see and rediscover the world through the eyes of others.
The art of communication and cooperation across cultural boundaries includes realising, respecting and overcoming differences, such as those between geographical regions, professional domains and communities of practice.
But where to start? And how to make use of the international opportunities ZHAW offers to both students and employees? ... Join us for insights and impact – and good food.
