Description du contenu de l'enseignement

This elective is jointly organized with Offenburg University for students from both universities. Consequently, lectures are delivered by one professor from each institution and equally take place at EM Strasbourg and Offenburg University (Campus Gengenbach). The elective aims to develop students’ ability to understand business in a globalized environment. Participants therefore explore key cross-border management issues relating to finance (mainly foreign exchange risks) and economics (mainly political and economic risks) from both a theoretical and a practical standpoint. By evaluating, through numerous exercises, the impact of cross-border risks and the effectiveness of transnational business activities, students learn how to come up with solutions to address identified issues, increase their own awareness of cross-border topics, and strengthen their collaborative skills thanks to binational in-class teamwork (intercultural learning athmosphere between French and German students).
