Students from DePaul University (in the US) and the University of Caxias (in Brazil) worked together along ten weeks in a Global Learning Experience project destined to leverage their ability to work in a multicultural teams. During this time, they elaborated a project for the international expansion for a company of their choice. For that, they had to chose two countries, other than Brazil and USA, to suggest an internationalization plan considering cultural, macro and microenvoirnmental factors in both countries.
The students worked collaboratively on 3 papers, a power point presentation, and wrote 2 journals: at the beginning and at the end of the collaboration.
Throughout the course, the two professors conducted classes to complement students’ work with the proper theoretical background and analytical tools. With the intent to assess the results of this experience, they measured the development of intercultural competence in these students and compared their results with others who did not work in multicultural teams. Preliminary results will be presented by both professors at an upcoming conference, and after repeating the project, the final results are being prepared for publication in the following year.
