Earn 4 elective credits toward your business degree, your business minor or your international studies degree while studying abroad in Germany! Challenges such as demographic change, social inequality, scarcity of commodities combined with global warming require clever solutions. Firms that will come out ahead are giving answers already today – they are succeeding in Innovation for Sustainability.
Meet students from Mexico, the USA and Germany to learn about and prepare for these challenges. Meet representatives of firms in key industries, such as automobiles, construction, new energies, and health as well as regional policy makers. This is Research-based Learning! Our study tour will start at NGU, Nürtingen-Geislingen University, in the heart of Baden-Württemberg. Germany‘s southwest is a region of famous innovators, home to globally active companies on the cutting edge and at the same time the first German federal state with a green government. We will also stay in Stuttgart, the state‘s capital; a trip to Munich in the neighboring state of Bavaria will offer additional opportunities for great leisure time.
