prerequisites and co-requisites


course contents

The study trip gives students the opportunity to acquire work-based intercultural skills. The teacher in charge encourages students to ask questions to inform themselves about potential destinations for the study trip, to search for relevant data and facts about the country of destination, and to organize the program. Students spend this week in an international environment; they mainly visit companies, attend courses at partner institutions as well as take part in talks and events relevant to the field of social skills. The aim is to ensure that students acquire an understanding of the main cultural characteristics of the respective country. Debates with experts and business leaders, visits to foreign trade institutions as well as other associations in business and the social field round off the international and personality-based skills students acquire during this study trip.
