Description

Elective Course

This course is designed to prepare students for their future career at a German-speaking company or institution. It will be divided in two parts: Part I will equip students with the necessary communication, reading and writing skills in order to apply for a job/internship. Visits to German, Austrian or Swiss companies and institutions will be organized. During the reading week, students will gain an insight into the day-to-day work activities of a visited company. Part II will focus on the students’ sharing experiences on the business entity. This includes analysis of company profiles. In addition, students will design a personal portfolio which will include a selection of their business writing. Guests will be invited to give students a deeper understanding of the differences between the working cultures of German and Chinese speakers. Classes will be conducted in German.
