I am so glad that I started on this IETP journey 2 years ago. I have learned so much and really value my new enhanced skill set, learning and open mind. I am not new to the education and more than ever I now know that learning never ends. We can always enhance our skills through new learning. Many windows and doors have been opened for me because of IETP.

The program has definitely enhanced my outlook/vision on intercultural skills! It will forever shape my outlook on all aspects of life from this time forward! I know some of the relationships will be ever- lasting! Stan Chung’s key note address was unforgettable and amazing!
