The bi-annual study trip to Russia consists of a combination of university lectures, company visits and a cultural programme.
Various company visits are on the agenda during the trips to Moscow and St. Petersburg. These include visits to the EU-funded waterworks Vodokanal and the Baltika Breweries, the largest brewery in Europe. These provide a detailed insight into specific processes in production and distribution channels of Russian companies.
As a participant of an International Week you may attend lectures at the university in St. Petersburg or Moscow, which will help you to better understand the cultural differences between Russia and Germany. Topics such as "How to do business in Russia" or even an interesting lecture on the economic situation in Russia give valuable insight into Russian society.
Cultural highlights of any trip to Russia are offered both in St. Petersburg such as the Catherine Palace with the Amber Room or the Winter Palace but also in Moscow with the Red Square as well as the Kremlin.
