Skills Institutes

IC Skills Institute's: From Theory to Practice.

About IC Skills Institutes

IMI skills institutes are 2 day long professional development workshops. They provide both practical intercultural communication skills and theoretical knowledge to international human resource and business professionals, aspiring intercultural trainers, and students, as well as those with interest in training for overseas living and/or work. IMI Skills Institutes are different from traditional courses in that they are where theory meets practice, offering the opportunity to gain practical application in your field of study or work.  

As a weekend intensive, skills institutes are held from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, and often require some group work and light homework.
