Industry – Academia collaboration for intercultural education

Komal Chopra

Abstract


The topic of intercultural education has gained prominence as a result of global corporations employing a diverse workforce and operating in countries with diverse culture. The transnational corporations provide training to their employees in handling people from diverse cultures. However, there is no formal educational programme offered by universities that meets the needs of these corporations. The research paper is a review paper and focuses on the cultural gaps in managing a diverse workforce. It also highlights how universities can take initiatives to design formal education programmes focused on managing workforce diversity. The paper is written with secondary data taken from prominent publications in the field of inter cultural studies. The paper provides a trigger to transnational corporations and educational universities to collaborate in designing and delivering intercultural educational programmes.
