German MBA Students at the Zarb School

As part of their overseas practicum, Hochshule Bremen City University of Applied Sciences MBA students recently visited the Zarb School of Business.

Their visit began with a lecture given by Dr. Richard Hayes of the Management and Entrepreneurship Department regarding Innovation and Entrepreneurship; and this was followed by a company visit to Canon’s U.S. Headquarters where they toured the product showroom and learned about sports marketing, branding, and Canon’s corporate message.

Students then met with Dr. Paul Martorana of the Management and Entrepreneurship Department to discuss Differences in Leadership in Global Companies and with Dr. Kaushik Sengupta of the Management and Entrepreneurship Department as they examined Global Supply Chain Management. Lifetime Brands in Garden City also hosted a tour and presentations for students by the controller, traffic coordinator and E-commerce marketing support officer. Class presentations concluded the visit as Dean Herman Berliner presented participants with certificates of completion.

Hochshule Bremen City University of Applied Sciences is an exchange partner with the Zarb School that also offers Zarb students the opportunity to study in Germany for a semester or during the summer break.

Summer 2015 Zarb Study Abroad Opportunities

Zarb has many study abroad options. The full list of programs and their details may be found at

For summer 2015, this post features two UNDERGRADUATE study abroad programs: one in Germany and the other in France.

Bremen, Germany

Two Hofstra professors will be teaching Legal 20 and Accounting 102 at the international summer program of Hochschule Bremen Institute of Applied Sciences, a partner school in Bremen, Germany. This program brings together over 100 students from countries around the world to Bremen, a small and historic city in northern Germany for instruction in English. Students arrive in Germany July 4th or 5th. Classes start July 6th and end July 29th, and students depart on July 30th

Last year, students came from such countries as Russia, India, and Mexico as well as the United States. Bremen is a lovely small city, founded by Charlemagne in 787. It is an hour from Hamburg, and is a great jumping off point for travel by train or budget airlines to other parts of Europe.

What courses are offered?

Professor Glen Vogel will be teaching “Introduction to Legal Systems, Environment, and Contracts,” which is equivalent to Legal 20. No prerequisites are required.

Professor Daniel Tinkelman will be teaching “Managerial Accounting,” which is equivalent to Accounting 102, except that in the Bremen program you will NOT need to have taken ACCT 101 as a prerequisite.

You may also take courses taught by instructors from other schools, such as Principles of Financial Management (counts as FIN 110), International Business (counts as IB 150), International Project Management (counts as a MGMNT elective), Operations and Supply Chain Management (counts as MGT 110) and Entrepreneurship and Business Planning (counts as ENTR 115).
