Economic and Managerial Challenges for Europe
This module is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students interested in international economics and international management. It provides a unique combination of business management and economics in form of lectures focusing on opportunities, threats and challenges that today's politicians throughout the world are confronted with.
The economic lectures will cover European macroeconomics, climate, trade and European competition policies as well as migration issues within the EU. The business lectures will deal with international financial reporting and taxation, corporate strategies and innovation, global supply chains and digital business processes, as well as human resource management in the wake of the demographic transition in Europe.
Lectures are prepared and presented by professors of the Faculty of Business Management and Economics of the University of Würzburg and partner universities who are all experts in their academic fields.
The course will be held in live and the material will be provided to the students prior to the summer school, so that you can easily work with reading material already before the course begins.
After completing the module successfully, students will have gained a basic understanding of major issues which have to be dealt with in the globalized economy.
A guided tour of the city of Würzburg will give you an idea of the city and surroundings, and the company visit - insight into German business culture.
There are no prerequistes except for a basic knowledge in the fields of business management and economics. The language of instruction is English, thus language proficiency on an advanced intermediate level (B2) is a prerequisite for participation. You can assess your language skills here (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) in order to get orientation as to your language skills.
