Through an international study trip, you will gain insights into the dynamic world of German and EU business. Tailored for applied learning, you can customise your experience with a 3.5 day visit to Mannheim Business School, one of Europe's leading institutions of executive learning, followed by 1.5 days in Frankfurt's global financial hub.

This is an opportunity to enrich your knowledge, expand your network, and gain insights into international business. You will interact with experts and explore cutting-edge practices through presentations, and visits to corporate/regulatory entities. The focus for this year includes entrepreneurship, finance, marketing, digitalisation, and the various aspects of the German Mittelstand and EU business framework.

What an amazing trip our MBA cohort had to Germany! I can't stop talking about it and how much I learned in such a short time. I gained insights into German business culture and had enriching discussions with my peers about "Mittelstand" and the influences of national cultural values on businesses. Many of my assumptions about Germany and family-run SMEs were challenged. It was a reminder of the importance of values in any business, from start-ups like "The Gentleman's" to industry leaders like BASF. Beyond learning, Germany was beautiful to explore, and I enjoyed the friendly people, the country's history and the uniqueness of Mannheim and Frankfurt. This trip was truly thought provoking, insightful, and well coordinated.”
