Greenwich targets international students

The Guidance and Employability Team (GET) at the University of Greenwich recently piloted a topical workshop to an international cohort of current MBA students. The aim of the workshop was to help international students bridge the cultural gap and to equip them with the employability tools needed to succeed in a fast-changing world.

The workshop involved a range of simulation exercises, cross-cultural awareness techniques and an overview of current regulatory and visa requirements.

Kevin Coutinho, a professional equality and diversity trainer/consultant currently working at the University of Cambridge, worked with GET staff at Greenwich to develop and deliver a lively, interactive and challenging programme. Student feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with requests for similar events in the future. Anil Bali, an MBA student from 2009, said:

"It was really helpful to get insights into the UK way of recruiting. Having someone who's not from the university adds a different perspective and was an incentive to attend."
