Cultural intelligence (CQ)

“Cultural intelligence (CQ) is the capability to relate and work effectively in culturally diverse situations.”
Cultural Intelligence, or CQ, measures students’ capability to relate and work effectively in culturally diverse situations. It is a form of intelligence tested by academic researchers in over 98 countries. The CQ Assessment is the only academically validated tool in the world that measures CQ. It is used by leading universities such as Harvard and the  University of Michigan. Students’ CQ predicts their readiness for working and relating effectively with people from different cultural backgrounds. The higher their CQ, the more likely they will gain new opportunities and experience success working in today’s diverse, globalized world.
