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 is marked by visits to companies and institutions, courses at partner universities as well as lectures and events in the field of social skills. The aim is to ensure that students acquire an understanding of the cultural and social mainstream of the country in question. Discussions 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.
