Program Overview CIEE Berlin Architecture


Since Germany’s reunification in 1990, Berlin has experienced a huge growth in the service-, technology-, and creative-sector industries. Today, it’s the start-up capital of Europe, headquarters for multinational giants like Siemens, and the capital of the largest economy in Europe. On CIEE’s Business and Culture program, you’ll explore fundamental economic concepts, problem solving, and the impact of new global demands on business strategy by analyzing how a country once torn apart by war became a worldwide economic power.

Study abroad in Berlin and you'll:

  • ​Gain fundamental business and economics knowledge, and sharpen your tools of analysis
  • Study the distinctive features of the Berlin, German, and European Union economies
  • Compare and contrast characteristic differences in German and U.S. business cultures
  • Begin or continue your German language study while you live Germany’s dynamic capital city of Berlin
