“Anybody can open a book and learn about finance and marketing,” says Alessandro, a recent MBA graduate student from Italy. But studying cross-cultural communication at Thunderbird has taught him to value “soft skills”.
The COI helped Suguna to communicate more effectively on a recent internship in Austria where styles were much more formal.

"In my ten year association with TMC, I have found their experienced-based consultation to be extremely useful - global leadership and cross-cultural effectiveness are some of the most exciting, challenging, and complex practices that we face today in Leadership and Management Development - the team at TMC has been instrumental in providing insightful, direction and programmatic support. Most importantly, their approach works, and has been well received by executives and the line in many of the organizations we support."
