Elizabeth Tuleja

Elizabeth Tuleja is a professor of Intercultural Communication and Global Leadership for MBA and Executive MBA programs at the University of Notre Dame, USA, where she also teaches and leads cross-cultural immersion programs in Shanghai and Chengdu every year.

Her mission is to enable global effectiveness through first understanding oneself (emotional intelligence) in order to understand others (cultural intelligence). She does this through her expertise in cross-cultural assessment tools which she believes add deep value to the learning experience. She has lived in Mexico, Peru, Hong Kong, and China, and has published two books: Intercultural Communication for Business (2015, 2e) and Intercultural Communication for Global Business: How leaders communicate for success (Routledge, 2017).

In addition, she has developed two online courses for the University of Notre Dame, and her most current project is working with a major South African University that will offer an online course on global leadership that will have a reach to over 40,000 students.

Prior to Notre Dame, Elizabeth was on the faculty at the Wharton School as well as the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Besides teaching, she has consulted with a variety of clients such as Boeing, U.S. Marines, U.S. Army, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, AXA, Marriott International, Verizon, China Development Bank, and HSBC.

Dr. Tuleja holds a Master’s degree in Intercultural Communication and a Doctorate in Education from the University of Pennsylvania, graduating with high distinction.

Elizabeth is currently in China on a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Award, (one of the most prestigious grants that an educator can receive) teaching intercultural communication and global leadership.
