“Doing Business in Europe: Opportunities and Challenges”

Our annual MBA summer program “Doing Business in Europe: Opportunities and Challenges” took place for the first time since the pandemic. 15 international students from our partner universities in the USA, Canada, the UK and South Africa were taking part:

  • The University of Chicago Booth School of Business

Supported through lectures from HHL’s Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Althammer, Dr. Dr. Justinus C. Pech, Prof. Dr. Manfred Kirchgeorg as well as Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Wink from HTWK (Hochschule für Technik, Wirtschaft und Kultur) Leipzig, the group touched on topics such as European integration, leadership and business ethics, European energy supplies and sustainable marketing.

Digital Space and SpinLab support MBA summer program 2022

A big thanks goes to HHL’s DIGITAL SPACE – The Digital Transformation Platform and the SpinLab – The HHL Accelerator for welcoming the group. One of the highlights surely was the Porsche AG company visit including a thrilling Porsche ride. The week in Leipzig ended with a case study presentation by the students with our Dean Prof. Dr. Stephan Stubner, a rowing boat tour and a farewell dinner at Kaiserbad.

Afterwards, the group spent the second part of the summer school in Prague. The program has been designed by our Manager International Relations Julia Brodacki in cooperation with Prague University of Economics and Business (Vysoká škola ekonomická v Praze) and includes visits to Czech companies such as Skoda or Avast, learning more about doing business in Eastern Europe.
