We all know the world is rapidly getting more international and markets grow global faster and faster – and there is no way back.

This means that future managers need to make ever more decisions in international and multicultural biz situations.  And this is exactly what we want to practice!

In only 9 hours we will work on projects from around the world and discuss best possible solutions.

  • We will take real cases.

  • We will do cases in class.

  • Students will do break-out groups and present their best judgment.

This seminar has its high value because of our holistic approach:

  • We try to think of all aspects, all target audiences, and all

  • consequences before deciding.
