International students need an explicit road map and instructions to develop communication and social skills American peers already possess. Our Success in the U.S. program is tailored to build student confidence and competency by providing targeted programs, offered at key points in the school year. Each workshop corresponds to a Student Readiness Phase, as illustrated in our guide. For descriptions of the workshops, click here.

Based on Judy’s campus visits to U.S. business schools, here are our recommendations for International student support for the 2017-18 academic year.
Domestic and International students communicate and collaborate differently. Know why and how to become more competent building across cultures.
Domestic students should understand how Asia, the rising economic power, and other cultures communicate, operate and make decisions.
Understanding cultural preferences and differences is essential to effective advising and teaching. Advisors and faculty have given us high praise for helping them bridge the cultural gap and develop strategies for greater impact.
Students thrive when they feel a sense belonging and genuine welcome by American students, faculty, staff and administrators. Building a globally-inclusive community requires a strategic approach, embedded in curriculum and co-curricular activities.
American universities have a unique opportunity to help International students have a positive, memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience that engenders long-term ties with the university.

In the U.S., 70% of jobs come from networking! Networking is a critical skill to develop if students are serious about landing a job in the U.S. The cultural aspects of networking present a unique challenge for International students, particularly those whose cultures frown upon self-promotion. Therefore, students need to possess a firm grasp of the “what” and “why” of networking before they can perfect the “how.”
These 13 short Networking videos will help students understand and develop the necessary skills for networking.
Below you will see the topics and titles of our Free Video Tutorial Library. We encourage you to use these videos as teaching/coaching tools when working with your students. Please share these with your students for them to view as well.
