European Business Skills

when 22 July 2013 - 9 August 2013
duration 3 weeks
credits 6 EC
fee EUR 1920

A three-week dive into European business life. Deal with intercultural differences in a business setting, and work on case studies in the Netherlands and Italy. The course European Business Skills offers theoretical background, but especially a practical approach to the skills needed in a European business setting. How do you prepare your marketing strategy for entering the German market? What can you expect in a first meeting with Spanish prospects? What do you need to know about the family business tradition in Italy? And, of course, how do you deal with the Dutch?

This course offers you two case studies in the food and agribusiness, both in the Netherlands and in a southern part of Europe: week 2 of this programme will take place in Italy.
