VEGA BTD Bulgaria Program, funded by USAID
Cross Cultural Training for Master of Business Administration Graduates Volunteers to VEGA Program

ELC, Ltd organized cross-cultural training courses for two groups of MBA graduates in 2005 and 2006. The trainings consisted of interactive classroom sessions and cultural excursions to different places in Bulgaria.

The topics of the sessions were meant to provide an introduction to Bulgaria and its people. History and culture as well as Bulgarian economy and business etiquette, communication patterns and values and beliefs were some of the topics covered in the course. We also provided practical tips and tools to ease everyday communication.

The outdoor portion of the trainings consisted of cultural excursions to local communities. The goal was to give trainees some perspective on rural life, nature and culture. They also had the opportunity to interact first hand with Bulgarian people and put their new knowledge to practice.
