During the Winter semester 2020/21 SRH Berlin engages in an innovative, digital, international teaching project within the course "Risk Management in Financing", taught in the International Management Master programme.

In this Global Classroom students from both universities participate in a set of lectures and tutorials offered by one teacher from SRH Berlin, together with two finance professors of Tecnológico de Monterrey. The project will be entirely practice-oriented and focused on a real-life case study, on which the students will have to work on in teams of 3 to 5 members, mixed according to gender and country.

What are the objectives of this experience? Develop critical thinking, decision making skills, global perspective, communication skills and collaborative work.

Project part of the IVAC funded programme „Digital Exchange: die barrierefreie Auslandserfahrung“.
The project is sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
