Germany: Bus. Env. in Europe, WHU-Otto Vallendar

The European Bachelor Summer Institute program at WHU-Otto Beisheim School of Management hosts 30 to 40 students each year from around the world.

You will take an intensive 3-week course at WHU, titled “Business, Political, and Cultural Environment in Europe,” and learn firsthand from top faculty members about economic developments in the European Union. You will visit one of Germany’s major international companies and either the European Central Bank or the German Central Bank. Your experience will encompass classroom instruction, two company visits and cultural activities.

The town of Vallendar, Germany, is a small, friendly community of 16,000 people. It is about a 10-minute bus ride from Koblenz, a larger city of just over 100,000 inhabitants with good shopping, restaurants and bars, and other attractions. Vallendar and Koblenz are located in the beautiful Rhine Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The region is known for its vineyards and tiny medieval castles that dot the hillsides.
