IMX Welcomes North Carolina State University’s Wolfpack!

31st May 2019

For the 7th year in a row, ESB Business School’s BSc
International Management Double-Degree program (IMX) is
hosting a 6 week summer school for its’ IPBS partner North
Carolina State University (NCSU). This year, 32 students are
taking part in the program and they are accompanied by 2
NCSU professors. The “Wolf Pack” is the nickname of the
athletic teams representing North Carolina State University
(NCSU) and all NC State students are considered part of the
pack. The summer school is a compact program that includes
Financial Management and Introduction to Managerial
Accounting, which are taught by NCSU Prof. Dr. Helmut
Hergeth and Prof. Dr. Thomas Dow as well as a history and
current issues course about the European Union that is taught
by EU expert Mr. Nils Bunjes.
The group arrived on May 16 th and the program officially
began on May 17 th . Their 1 st day was filled with information to
help them survive in their temporary place of study which
included a campus and city tour led by Julie Dengler. That
afternoon, Prof. Dr. Naeve led the group up Reutlingen’s
highest mountain-the Achalm for a breathtaking view of their
new surroundings.
As part of their orientation, the group was introduced to
Tübingen. They were treated to a scenic guided tour, punting
boat ride and dinner at the Neckarmüller. They were joined by

one of their pack mates who is finishing her 8 th semester of
the double-degree program along with several ESB German
students who will be spending 2 years in the double-degree
program at NCSU. They networked and exchanged tips about
living in Germany vs. America with each other while enjoying
their traditional German meals.
Besides attending lectures in Reutlingen, they have already
toured the Daimler plant in Sindelfingen and were given
insight to the many career opportunities Daimler has to offer
through Joanne Dittrich, from HR Development & HR Services
and they were given an interesting presentation from ESB
Business School graduate Niklas Ewald from Daimler Planning
and Reporting Revenue Controlling USA. They also toured the
Berg Beer brewery in Ehingen (Berg) and learned about the
historical brewing process Germany is famous for. There are
several other company visits planned including a visit to Stoll,
Liebherr, Bosch and EY, and they will also visit cultural sites
including Heidelberg, Dachau, Rüdesheim, Frankfurt and
For many of the students it is the first time they have
travelled outside of the United States of America. Many of
them are still facing culture shock, but they are also enjoying
their free time with numerous travel options at their
doorstep. We wish all of them an enjoyable time in Germany
and on their travels throughout Europe!
