European Business and Economics Programme (EBEP)
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”).
