Primary Instructor:

This course deals with the language of commerce and industry in German, with modes of expression for technology and marketing.

The goal of this course will be to enhance communicative patterns with German business partners (in person, via the phone, in writing) but also to detect and react to culturally engrained differences in thought and behavioral patterns.

Particular attention will be given to the cultural differences that affect German-American business transactions, and we hope to devise potential solutions to further American and German business relationships in the future. You are therefore encouraged to think about ways how to connect business professionals that engage in transatlantic partnerships.

Course Requirements:

Course requirements include active class participation, group projects, two class presentations, shorter writing assignments, and a final project.
