Attending the WHU summer institute has been the most valuable part of my MBA studies thus far. Having the opportunity to interact with students and professionals from across the globe strongly supported both my personal and professional development. The course is well organized and provides the perfect mix of culture, academics and fun! Lecturers focused on the nature of business functions from a European perspective. Each lecturer was extremely passionate about their work and was able to convey a great deal of information in a relatively short period of time. Following each lecture session, teams of students were able to solve assigned cases and present on them in class. The company site visits were all excellent. My favourite part of the trip was our visit to the European Central Bank where we were able to discuss many of the issues of the current financial crisis with key economic advisors at the ECB. Throughout the two weeks you form strong relationships which makes the Summer Institute a great way to develop your professional network while making some great friends. I would recommend this to any student considering international studies that may not be able to spend a whole semester abroad. After experiencing the thrill of international studies I can’t wait to for my next opportunity.
