Time of the course: Tuesdays 17:45-19:15 (course assistant: Nicolas)

Students are trained to perceive cultural differences and act accordingly. The intercultural competence gained is both "culture-general" and "culture-specific" (e.g. students will practice culture-specific "crash investigations" in order to prepare visits abroad). Theoretical insights into different working styles, different perceptions of time, different religions, and different education styles are applied in exercises and in concrete simulations involving active interaction if possible with participants from several other cultures.

On this elective course BACHELOR students develop self-confidence in typical situations in an English work place (e.g. giving presentations and taking part in and chairing meetings). Furthermore, they should enhance their sensitivity to different cultural situations. As communication skills have to be developed, the focus will be on interactive teaching methods to give students the chance to improve listening comprehension and speaking performance. The students choose their own subjects for the course at the beginning of the semester.

Time of the course: Tuesdays 16.00-17.30 (course assistant: Christopher and Kamran)

Students will set up a simulated company and communicate with institutions and individuals in different countries. The international project environment will enable the participants to learn about the workings of a company as well as to practice dealing with international project partners in a near-realistic situation. Students will be able to put their intercultural knowledge into practice in real contact with foreign partners in the preparation of a project meeting.
The topic this semester will be decided by the students.

Participants will build teams and create and manage their own clearly-defined projects. In the whole group participants will face the questions:
- “What are the client’s needs and how can I find them out and document them?”
- “How can we design and promote services?”
- “What is my role as a multiplier and how can mentoring skills facilitate this?”
- ”What prejudices can occur in international business and how to overcome ethical problems?”
