Customized Programs

  • Topic-Specific Training Programs

    The ILTC offers training in a variety of fields. Once we understand your organization's specific training needs, we build a customized plan to meet your goals for program content, delivery time, and participant experience.

  • Exposure to Best Practices

    Practical experience, including business visits and interaction with professional peers, ensures participants are exposed to best practices in leadership, management, and other specific training fields.

  • Cross-Cultural Classroom Experience

    Classroom experience is important for many ILTC groups. We find ways to integrate classroom learning experiences with cross-cultural opportunities so students learn to solve problems with a global mindset.

    English training is available to participants in a variety of formats, but is not required. Translators are available for participants who would like to complete training in their native language.
