CP International Business: Germany Study Trip 2015
In October 2015, the College of Management of Mahidol University (CMMU) organized a study visit to Munich, Germany with the support of the German Embassy in Bangkok. This trip was offered as part of a course on “International Business”. 18 CMMU students had a chance to talk to senior executives and managers in leading German companies, including BMW, Goldhofer and the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Munich.
CMMU students also joined a seminar on ‘Strategic Management’ at the Faculty of Business, Technical University Munich where they worked on a case study together with German students. A special workshop on “cross-cultural aspects of German culture” introduced the students to cultural differences between Thailand and Germany. To complete their course, students had to reflect on their learning experiences in Germany and assess the transferability of the knowledge they had gained to the Thai context.
