Celebrate International Education Week - November 14 - 18, 2016

Take advantage of a truly international experience without leaving home in a webinar with the Beijing Language and Culture University.

International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to highlight the importance of preparation for a global environment.  We invite you to learn about and celebrate the benefits of international education in a webinar November 17 featuring one of Phi Theta Kappa’s International Honors Certificates Program partners, the Beijing Language and Culture University.

Phi Theta Kappa’s International Honors Certificates help prepare students to reach personal and professional goals in a global environment.  The world is interconnected and skills to work in multi-cultural contexts are vital. As a major economy, China has great impact across the world in many ways, and the chances are good that you will encounter people, participate in business, or engage with issues connected to China.  Understanding of China and Chinese culture can enhance your success.  Join us for the webinar and meet faculty from the Beijing Language and Culture University, participating live from Beijing, and learn about the International Honors Certificate in Contemporary China and Chinese Culture they designed.
