Köln (or Cologne, as it is known in English) is on the western side of Deutschland within a few hours of Dusseldorf, Brussels and Luxembourg. Köln, Germany's oldest city, has become one of the important business centers of central Europe with many multinational corporations having access via land, sea and air. The skyline of Old Town Köln is defined by the Cathedral known as Der Kölnner Dom and is breathtaking at night.
Köln provides the opportunity to compare management styles of American and German executives. Objectives of this course are to use knowledge from previous classes to compare and contrast the styles of executives that we will meet. We will study the history of the European Union, the Institutions, and EU Policies and will study the history of the European Union, the Institutions, and EU Policies and policy making. A trip to the US Mission, Commercial Services Division in Brussels will focus on doing business in the EU and the impact that the EU has on companies in Germany. Through lectures at the Cologne Business School we will compare the legal and ethical business practices of those in Europe and the US.
