This program will explore the question of how do companies take advantage of doing business in the European Union, while managing regional challenges? And how do government policies affect how business is done?
About the program
Estimated costs & bursary
Building on the research interests of the faculty of HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management and current trends, participants are offered various viewpoints as to business in Europe while studying in both Leipzig and Prague.
The goal of this program is to offer a comprehensive view as to various economic, political and business climates throughout Europe. It will be composed of lectures, company visits and case studies providing students a variety of perspectives. The lectures will be given by HHL professors, government advisors, as well as professors from our eastern European partner universities. Company visits in both Leipzig and Prague, such as at Porsche and Skoda, will allow participants to hear first-hand how managers of multinational companies attempt to reap the rewards of doing business in Europe while managing the hurdles. Furthermore, participants will gain insights as to how various cultures affect how decisions are made at the management level. Special to the Porsche visit is the opportunity to ride alongside a professional driver on the Porsche track at over 200 km per hour! The combination of academic, cultural and in-the-market-outlooks as to the current European business climate will allow students to form their own views as to the future of business in the European Union. At the end of the program student teams will give case presentations and an exam will allow students to reflect upon what has been learned.
