Global Competence Certificate (GCC)

Global Gateway now offers the Global Competence Certificate (GCC) for K-12 teachers, administrators and business professionals, interested in enhancing their intercultural effectiveness and productivity. A GCC is awarded upon successful completion of half-day, full-day and multi-day trainings.

Success requires the ability to navigate the many layers that can negatively impact communication and collaboration among individuals of diverse cultural backgrounds.

The GCC is the first-of-its-kind at the University of Montana, issued by the Office of International Programs (OIP). Becoming culturally and globally competent is more than recognizing and understanding biases; it is about being able to harness different perspectives that are useful in educational settings, the local workplace and the global marketplace.

The GCC will provide a competitive advantage in the marketplace as schools, companies and businesses increasingly demand cultural sensitivity and global competence.
