The Transatlantic Business Project Seminar course includes in-class sessions and a joint project with students from the Berlin School of Economics and Law. Bi-national student teams will conduct research on one or more specific barriers to transatlantic trade or investment. The focus will be on how such barriers affect individual firms and how their elimination would improve the firms’ business potential. Teams are encouraged to conduct interviews with representatives of firms or industry associations in order to obtain a managerial perspective on impact of differences in accounting rules, business practices and trade investment barriers.
Educational experiences include more than what is learned in the classroom: students travel to Berlin, Germany and learn to work on a project team with constraints such as language and culture barriers, time differences and cyber communication. Program includes business site visits as well as cultural site visits.Location: San Diego, CA and Berlin, Germany

If you are a high school sophomore, junior, or senior interested in experiencing the intersection of business, language, and culture— this two-week program is for you. This intensive experience, presented by IU CIBER (the Indiana University Center for International Business Education and Research) will bring to life the phrase, “Business is global.”
The program's curriculum, supported by the Chinese Flagship Center, the Swahili Flagship Center, and the Turkish Flagship Center in the IU School of Global and International Studies, will introduce you to the less-commonly taught foreign languages spoken in these emerging economies:
Mandarin Chinese: East Asia
Swahili: East Africa
In addition, you will gain a basic understanding of the business practices of North America, East Asia, East Africa, and Turkey through an accelerated curriculum based on the Kelley School of Business’s top-ranked undergraduate program. These business classes will provide a basic understanding of business vocabulary and a general overview of how businesses operate as well as discuss current events.
