Business & Economics student trips to Berlin
The capital city of Europe’s largest economy provides many interesting perspectives for Business and Economics students on an educational trip. As a divided city lying within the borders of the old East German, Berlin’s fortunes were tempered by location and politics. Since Reunification the city has undergone significant and often fundamental changes, fighting to regain its rightful position as Germany’s premier city.
Today it is a city with a diverse economy. In recent years the service sector has grown, while construction and manufacturing have declined. Yet many of the industrial facilities that have prospered are modern and competitive.
Equity offers an interesting selection of excursions in Berlin to illustrate a wide range of business and economic issues. These include guided tours of Berlin Airport, Vattenfall AB Powerplant and the BMW Motorcycle factory. Students will see the vastly different production processes for different products, the complexities of logistics and organisation, the high level of investment and the potential returns it can bring.
