Germany - Fulda
- Course: BUS 365 - Global Management AND BUS 494 International Business Study Tour
- When: December 30, 2012 to January 12, 2013
- Faculty Leader: Dr. William Wresch
- Description: We will fly into Frankfurt and then immediately take the train to Berlin so we can celebrate New Year’s Eve at the Brandenburg Gate. After that first weekend in Berlin, we will travel to Fulda. Fulda is about 65 miles northeast of Frankfurt, and is the home of Fulda University of Applied Sciences. We will join other students from around the world on their campus.
Mornings you will study Global Management with Dr. Wresch. Afternoons and evenings you will study German language and culture with some classroom work and many trips to business and cultural sites. You will get to practice your German in the local restaurants.
Activities during the afternoons vary depending on the day. On a few afternoons we
will tour German businesses to compare how they operate with similar US businesses.
Other afternoons may include German cooking classes and dance classes. A special
afternoon excursion will be to Point Alpha. Point Alpha is located on the former East/
West German border passed just east of Fulda, and large Soviet and East German forces
were stationed in the area as it was considered to be a potential invasion route against the
German Democratic Republic and the Eastern bloc countries.
Evenings are generally open for the students and they enjoy exploring the Fulda nightlife.
