In the spring semester, I will teach a 3-ECTS bachelor's course called International Business. As part of this course, students will participate in a (physical) international week, but they will also need to attend seminars and sit a final examination. Recently, I have been thinking about replacing this final examination with a TEP. My idea is that students will learn about intercultural communication in business in the seminars which I will teach and that they will then apply the theory at hand in real life. The course is fully taught in English (CEFR B2) and is part of the curriculum of second-year Office Management students. Content-specific objectives: - To familiarise students with a chosen theory on intercultural communication in business - To encourage students to apply their knowledge of this theory in a business case - To enable students to experience cultural differences in teamwork in real life For this course, I am looking for one or more international partners who would like to work on intercultural communication in business. The students at the partner institution(s) involved can be business students, but I am willing to also consider other disciplines. I myself have no direct experience with setting up a virtual exchange project, but I have participated as a coach in another virtual exchange project which a team of colleagues of mine has been running for over 3 years now.

I am currently still thinking out the project, so anyone who is developing a project in this area or with similar course objectives is free to contact me. I would be pleased to continue brainstorming together.
