European Business and Economics Programme (EBEP)

Overview

The business programmes are a unique blend of business, politics, language and culture, offering business and economics students alike the chance to undertake a demanding, in-depth study of Germany and the European Union.

 

The academic content of this course is taught in four modules which are specifically focused on the European Union in terms of politics, intercultural management, marketing, and economics. Students are being offered a multidisciplinary approach to the headline topic including visits to institutions and to an automobile company as well as German language & culture classes at beginners level.

 

This course is very similar to the three-week course “Markets and Management in Europe” except that it offers an extra week of insight information into the philosophies underlying the EU (“Values and Politics of the EU”).

Student Testimonial

André B. Gimenez
University of Campinas (Brazil), EBEP 2009, DAAD Scholar

“We are a very international group, people from all over the world. Nowadays you have to learn to deal with people from different cultures. This international environment that we have here, is something you cannot learn sitting in a classroom.

I’m learning much more than just European business because in our class we have all the other students contributing different views. The professors really open space for students to bring new things into class. This is exactly the kind of opportunity I was expecting.”
