European Business and Economics Programme (EBEP)

This programme provides business and economics students with an insight into the structures and trends that influence European business and economics today.

Over the course of four modules students will explore the European Union via the themes of politics, intercultural management, marketing and economics. To complement this multidisciplinary approach participants take part in a range of visits to institutions and an automobile company as well as completing a module on German culture & society from an intercultural perspective.

This course is very similar to the three-week course “Markets and Management in Europe” except that it includes an extra week of classes, which provides an insight into the philosophies underpinning the EU (“Values and Politics of the EU”).
