Students received a comprehensive orientation simulation, learning how to use their controllers and having great fun in the process!

“I loved being able to work with the German students at ESB. It was such a unique experience to study and learn from another culture and take one of their classes.” stated Sam Holder, a North Carolina State University (NCSU) student, who attended the two-week intensive module “Teamwork in Organizations” at ESB.

The course was one of a series offered within the NCSU Global Leadership & Team Decision Making Minor. It was made available to ESB students in the “MSc International Accounting, Controlling and Taxation” and “MSc International Business Development” study programmes as elective module.

The ESB and NCSU students collaborated closely over two weeks, discovering first-hand the chances and challenges of working in international teams. Six teams were set up to tackle real-life cases provided by WAFIOS Aktiengesellschaft.

Throughout the course, instruction was provided by Professor Dr Hazel Gruenewald (ESB) and Leigh Shamblin, EdD, MBA, ACC (NC State Poole College of Management). The cross-Atlantic duo coached the teams on how to tackle the business cases. They also supported team members in identifying their strengths, cultural values and management styles and in considering how to leverage these aspects for overall team efficacy.
