course contents

The study trip gives part-time students the opportunity to acquire intercultural competence. Under the guidance of the lecturer, the students find out about potential study destinations, research relevant data and facts about the destination country and organize the program: The week in an international environment includes visits to companies, lectures at partner universi-ties as well as lectures and events in the field of Social Skills. The aim is to ensure that stu-dents acquire an understanding of the cultural mainstream of the country in question. Discus-sions with specialists and executives, visits to foreign trade centers, business and social associations round off the international and personality-building experiences of the study trip.
