GGC Sustainable Business Practices in Germany

Munich, Nuremberg, and Berlin, Germany

Germany Summer 24 - 1
About the Program

Travel to Germany for a 10-day study abroad trip during May of 2024 where you will experience the effects of political, legal, economic, and socio-cultural environments on sustainable business practices, allowing you to understand the relevant aspects of German culture as you forge your future career path and further sustainable business goals. By building relationships with academic and industry leaders in Berlin, Munich, and Nuremberg, you will be uniquely situated as a future leader in the Atlanta area to continue the legacy of strong business ties among these cities.

You will take German language and culture classes facilitated by the Goethe Zentrum in preparation for the trip, and you will also build relationships with counterparts on German campuses to begin collaboration on an international business issue prompted by one of our business partners.
