Professional Development Courses

Capacity building is an English term that has been defined by Van Geene (2003), as the process from which people; groups; organizations; institutions and societies increase their capacities to:

  1. Realize the functions of base, resolve problems; define and achieve objectives;
  2. Understand and answer to their development needs, in a large context and in the long-term

Djagora university offers the following courses:

Advanced Executive Communication Skills

In this program, you develop advanced skills in business communication, as well as public speaking and presentations in the workplace.
Cultural Competence for the Global Workforce 
In today’s business environment, the ability to communicate effectively across geographies and cultures is increasingly important. Do you know that someone from a different culture may be showing you respect by avoiding eye contact in conversation? Culture might also explain why you don’t receive quick e-mail replies from colleagues or clients in Asia.

In this program, you develop the skills to understand various cultures, including communication patterns, norms, expectations, and taboos. The program includes a mix of lectures, case studies, illustrative videos, discussion, and a cultural simulation exercise.

Globalization is not just a buzzword—it’s today’s way of life. DjU and ECLEE offers innovative opportunities for study abroad in Europe and the United States, as well as customized continuing education in America, Africa, Asia and Europe.
