This Winterim will take participants to Hamburg, Berlin, Kassel, and Freiburg, where the program will explore high-tech in the green energy sector. Germany has been at the leading edge of the green energy movement for many decades and is often depicted as the ?Silicon-Valley? of the industry. Program content will focus on applied knowledge, such as the development and application of renewable energy technology, managing innovation, and dissemination. The course content and visits will have an integration of culture and global management issues in a highly participatory fashion. Students will be encouraged to prepare business/culture and/or political economy analysis, and practice a high level of understanding regarding manners and protocol in Germany. Learning will be primarily through site visits, guest speakers, and integrative lecture/discussions.
