Doing business in Germany – study tours for MBA students

DBi Germany 2017 is a study tour concept offered exclusively for (E)MBA students of our partner universities. It is designed and managed by the ZIB-WiSo.

In 2017 the programme will once again take a closer look at the German automotive sector as well as the German energy sector.

During the 12-day programmes (50 contact hours each) you will visit institutions, companies and hear expert talks to receive first-hand information about the current challenges and prospects of the industries from a German perspective. You will learn in detail about international corporate strategy, implications of EU policies, lobbying as well as digital transformation, leadership and communication.

The DBi Germany programme is an excellent opportunity to become acquainted with the characteristics and specificities of German business practices within these dynamic sectors. It combines academic and practical content in a unique way so that you can witness theory being put into practice directly on-site.
