This year’s Berlin International Summer School at the HWR Berlin has got off to a successful start. With 139 participants from various countries, a new course is attracting particular interest: “Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management in Germany.” Focussing on the start-up scene, it is of special relevance to Berlin, which attracts increasing numbers of new businesses from every corner of the world.

Berlin seeks to use its network of partner city agreements as the institutional framework within which to pursue its internationalization agenda. The HWR Berlin has maintained one of the oldest German partnerships with a Chinese university: an agreement with the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) in Chengdu was first reached 30 years ago.

The BSEL open day at the end of May saw hundreds of school-leavers visit the university, marking the start of the application phase for the coming winter semester.
