Hochschule Furtwangen University - Business School

HFU-Summer School programme 2018 for international students: “White Water Management – Learning Management in a new way”

This summer school teaches relevant management principles in an action-orientated outdoor & white water kayaking environment of the canton Ticino in Switzerland from the 3rd August 2018 until the 10th August 2018. Our course language is English.

Like the environment for managers the environment of white water is marked through uncertain, unpredictable settings, which demands again and again strategic target-orientated decisions by the actors. Students will learn management principles effectively and directly exercised in action. This approach leads even kayak-beginners through the experience of white water straight to the core tasks of management. It’s about skills, not about muscles! White water beginners are welcome!

The course provides 6 ECTS. It is designed not only for students of Bachelor, Master and Ph. D. level with a focus on Business Management, but also for other related studies, which provide management input.

possible from now until 15th of June 2018

Places are limited to 12 students!
