Our Mission

ICCM was founded to serve as a resource for global organizations facing the challenges of operating in a global environment. We provide intuitive answers to difficult cross-cultural issues through innovative, rigorous research. We then translate and transfer those findings into well-designed solutions to meet  the real-world needs of global organizations.

Our mission is to develop leaders and organizations to succeed in the global environment through evidence based research and programs.

Whether you are a small company venturing out of the country for the first time, a Fortune 500 company re-evaluating its strategy after an overseas failure, or a public agency with a global mission, ICCM can help you adapt to a new cultural context and prepare for success.

History of ICCM

The seeds of ICCM were planted in 1997 when the Industrial Organizational Psychology program at Florida Tech conducted a needs analysis with global leaders and began to integrate cross cultural and international elements into the curriculum.  Gradually, the program added faculty with expertise and passion for international research, and the Culture Research Group was founded.  As the research program began to prosper it drew international attention and visiting scholars such as Ronald Fischer, Colleen Ward, Zenyep Aycan, John Berry and other Fulbright professionals.   These activities were formalized with the founding of the Institute for Cross Cultural Management in 2009, which served to centralize the international activities.  ICCM is now an official research center at the Florida Institute of Technology and provides solutions to government agencies through funded research, and answers to questions from Fortune 100 companies.
