"Digital Opportunities in Europe"
This module is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students interested in business information systems and international management. It provides a unique combination of business and information technology and focusses on opportunities emerging from an increasingly digitalized and globalized economy 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 which are all experts in their fields. The lectures are combined with excursions to internationally oriented companies and public institutions which allow for discussions from a more practical perspective.
Here you find the programme of the Summer School 2017.
Cultural activities such as wine tasting and a guided vistit tour of the Würzburg Residenz complement the learning experience in order to provide students with a deep insight into business, culture and every day life in our region.
