Study Trip

level of course unit

second cycle, Master

Learning outcomes of course unit

Through the educational trip students studying on a part-time basis will be provided with the opportunity to gain inter-cultural experience. Under guidance from the course lecturers, students will inform themselves of potential destinations, research relevant facts and figures about the chosen country and organize the program: the week in an international environment is shaped by corporate visits, lectures at partner universities as well as presentations and events in the field of social competences. This is to ensure that students gain an understanding of cultural mainstreams in the country in question. Discussions with specialists, visits to foreign trade centers of the WKÖ (Austrian Federal Economic Chamber) and economic and social societies will complete the international and character-forming experience of the educational trip.
