Program Description:

Program OverviewIFS Nuertingen

Company visits in key industries, lectures on sustainability and methodology, three German towns, two amazing weeks, one great summer school tour. Our global challenges such as climate change, social inequality, or scarcity of commodities require local, bold, and fast yet thoughtful action. Coming out ahead will provide opportunities for businesses: this is Innovation for Sustainability. Join IfS. We create an active and inspiring learning environment in English by traveling to companies and policy entities that take responsibility through innovation. Meet business representatives, make contacts, and feel the spirit of innovation. Get together with students from Mexico, the USA, and Germany in Germany‘s southwest. Its picturesque Neckar Valley is a region of famous innovators, home to globally active companies, and the first German federal state with a green government. 

Students from different cultural and academic backgrounds convene in IfS and engage creatively with current social, economic and environmental challenges in heterogeneous research teams. Four years of experience show that this intercultural setting provides students with opportunities to acquire pivotal extracurricular skills for their future practical business careers. The gap between theory and practical business is bridged by actively involving companies and trainers into the summer school. An intensive exchange of experiences in an international environment is guaranteed as the group consists of members of different cultural backgrounds and nationalities.
