A broad range of subjects

Faced with growing political, economic, cultural, and social globalization, businesses will make increasing demands on their employees, who will have to work across national and linguistic borders.

You will obtain the competencies you need via foreign language training, via knowledge of social conditions, and via knowledge of the sociological and economic factors influencing decision-making processes in various cultures.

We recommend that you participate in a study group since this will enable you to discuss what you have read, preparing you for the way you will later cooperate with your colleagues on joint projects in a business context.
