Explore entrepreneurship and innovation management in Europe's start-up capital – Berlin. The programme will offer you a strong foundation in how to start and grow a business in a dynamic marketplace, using the vibrant Berlin start-up scene as an example. You will follow a hands-on and multidisciplinary approach, which will include educational visits and a one-week workshop with Berlin-based start-ups, plus the opportunity to work with the school's "Startup Incubator Berlin".

Our "German Culture & Society: Intercultural Perspectives" module will offer you the chance to reflect on your cross-cultural experience in greater detail.

Before the start of the on-site programme in Berlin, we will offer a virtual German language preparatory course as an optional add-on. This course is the ideal preparation for your time in Berlin – you will receive fascinating insights into German culture and a crash-course in the German language, all before you have even landed in Germany.
