The International Summer Business Program originally combines management courses and a real company case study over a two-week period in Lyon.
It is targeted at international students looking to obtain an insight in strategic business development with a comparative approach of the international business environment and an
input by both academic and practitioners.
The program focuses on Strategic Business Development with Europe illustrating how prosperous international businesses have established themselves in Europe and how companies can likewise expand successfully from Europe to international markets.
A business site visit will be organised to an international Lyon-based company in order to provide the students with a direct insight into their development strategy.
Presentations are made by a company representative followed by a Questions & Answers session.
Students will then be set a current case study project which will be followed by a debriefing and results and feedback session.
> e.g. Company Case Study: Renault Trucks - Volvo Group
