Bavarian Trip Brings Business Course to Life

This Spring, our Business students visited Munich, Germany to discover how their subject is put into practice at the Bavarian Capital.

Munich is home to roughly 22,000 high-tech companies, most prominently in fields of automotive engineering, telecommunications and aerospace.

Some of the activities on the trip included a visit to the birthplace of BMW at their headquarters, where students were given a guided tour of the BMW Welt and Museum. They also visited the Olympic Park where they experienced the 360° Tower and were given a tour of Allianz Arena, home to FC Bayern Munich.

Business students, Kelsey, Kinneh and Lorna, commented: “The trip was an eye opener to the business world and we were able to experience a different culture while making new friends. There were many attractions organised for us and we all enjoyed the amount of free time we got to explore Munich.”

Programme Manager for Business and Travel & Tourism, Yvonne Gitendorfa, commented: “The trip was of upmost benefit for our Business students. International trips like this really give the students an insight into the world of business outside of the UK and the many opportunities available to them post education. Munich is a technology leader and it is very evident when visiting the city. One of the highlights of the trip was visiting the birthplace of BMW, where our students learned not just about the history of the motor giant, but also about the development of their electric cars and their current research into driverless vehicles.”
