MBS welcomes 15 professors from 13 foreign partner Universities during its international week
An international experience with teaching units linked to the MBS mission for business transformation.
To give students a taste of international experience, the International Engagement Office organizes every semester the International Week: a week during which the participants have the opportunity to attend courses given by professors from the foreign partner universities of MBS.
For this new edition, 15 professors from 13 partner universities have been invited to lecture on campus to the students. Business Ethics, Digital transformation or Sustainability management: all the courses had in common that they were directly linked to the mission of MBS: to train the forerunners of the responsible economic transition.
“It is essential that students today have the opportunity to develop a critical thinking on the notion of sustainability. I found the MBS students to be very involved in these notions and this lecture aims at helping them to sort through the information and recognize the priorities for a more sustainable economy”, explains Dr. Agnieszka Gehringer from TH Köln. “I particularly found that some of them were sincerely interested, which is good news considering the climate challenges ahead,” adds Dr. Rupert Holzapfel from the Hochschule Bremen.
Workshops to prepare students for international mobility
In addition to the pedagogical dimension, this week was also an opportunity to take a look at the final steps before leaving for a foreign country. Carole Santos-Magliozzi’s team was involved in building a program of conferences highlighting the different financial aid available for a mobility abroad as well as workshops to discover the international health coverage or the use of a possible assistance abroad.
