Business German and Tourism Management

A cooperation between the Asian Studies program at the HTWG Konstanz and selected partner universities in ASIA: In this cooperation program, Asian students first complete a two-year program at their home universities, then finish their degree with a two-year program in Konstanz. Graduates earn a bachelor’s degree from both universities.

Teamwork

  • Intercultural Projects

    First-year WDT students take part in an intercultural project each semester involving German students in the Asian Studies and Management China / Southeast Asia programs and international students in the Studienkolleg. Students form mixed groups and work together on projects. In addition to covering academic content, the project work also offers space for interactions and discussions between the different cultures and mentalities. This allows students to experience the benefits and challenges that can arise in intercultural team projects and how they can be handled.

     

     

     

  • Tandem Learning

    Tandem learning is a method for learning a foreign language in which two people, each with a different native language, come together to help the other person learn their language and a glimpse of the other culture.
    There are no fixed rules - the participants are free to choose their own method of “teaching” the language. The two tandem partners decide together where, when and what they want to learn.
    Tandem learning is offered by the HTWG Konstanz Intercultural Center. Contact them for more information.

  • Learning Team Coaching

    Learning Team Coaching is a project that connects WDT students with students in Asian Studies and Management programs. This project, initiated in 2012 and presented at the HTWG Konstanz “Day of Learning” last year, is a fruitful partnership: connecting WDT students studying German and tourism management in Konstanz with German students learning Asian languages, culture and business.


    The students from the two degree programs work on academic content in mixed study groups and thereby gain experience in international team building and self-organized learning. They have the opportunity to develop language and culture skills, as well as learn content in business administration and intercultural communication.
    Learning team coaching is an innovative form of teaching and learning that prepares students for the demands of professional jobs.
