CIC - Certificate of Intercultural Competence
As globalization proceeds apace on the labor market, intercultural skills grow in importance. This is true whether you are working in an international research group or in a multinational corporation or institution and is one of the reasons that we developed the Certificate Intercultural Competence (CIC). This certificate highlights your commitment to extracurricular and cross-cultural activities in addition to your standard academic pursuits when you begin, for example, applying for jobs. Instead of individual certificates for extracurricular activities or voluntary work, you can earn a single, comprehensive Certificate Intercultural Competence. This details your various skills and accomplishments.
Participation in our CIC program is free of charge! We hope it is understood as a reward for students particularly devoted to promoting intercultural awareness and understanding.
