Are You Culturally Intelligent? A Framework to Assess and Develop Cultural Intelligence

Track: Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Accreditation

Keywords: Assessment, Cultural Intelligence; Experiential Learning Activities

AACSB requires that students demonstrate a commitment to address, engage and respond to current and emerging corporate social responsibility issues including diversity, sustainable development, environmental sustainability and globalization of economic activity across cultures as measured by indicators and approaches to measure student learning. This paper pursues this goal by first exploring and defining culture and presenting the nuances and challenges of teaching students about culture in an environment supportive of multiple cultures (e.g., national, regional, local, corporate, etc.). Finally, the paper concludes with a discussion of a framework to assess and develop cultural intelligence consisting of a cultural intelligence pre-assessment and feedback, cultural intelligence transformation activities, and a cultural intelligence post-assessment and feedback.
