Germany & Austria: Business and Culture

Tentative travel:  December 28, 2022 - January 13, 2023

The purpose of this program is to provide an educational experience on business and culture in Germany and Austria. Students will visit various types of businesses, domestic and multi-national, to understand how business is done in both countries and by extension, in Western Europe.

This study abroad program is intended to provide a personal growth experience where students become more internationally and culturally competent and confident.

At the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss how business works in Germany and Austria and by extension, the Western Europe region.
  • Work productively in a team to accomplish specific assignments and tasks successfully
  • Have cultural and international competence to develop confidence in an international setting
  • Understand and appreciate cultural differences and how other societies operate
