A week-long summer school takes place at the end of your first year of GLOCAL. It is organised by a different partner university each year and includes visiting professors from associate partners from around the world.
The topic will be decided on an annual basis and relate to trends and issues of the moment. (Unfortunately due to COVID-19, the 2020 Summer School scheduled for Gdansk had to be cancelled, but you can see the provisional programme in the link)
Summer School Gdansk 2020 – provisional
It is expected that all enrolled students attend the annual Summer School. Next year’s incoming students are also welcome to attend if possible.
The cost of the summer school fees is embedded in the total programme fees whether students decide to attend the summer school or not. However, the travel costs and living costs incurred during the summer school, are not included in these fees and must be covered by the student. Some subsidised support and accommodation for students is available.
“The GLOCAL summer school was not only a moment to reunite with the people who have become my family for the past year, but also an opportunity to meet new people, hear different perspectives regarding family owned businesses around the world and to connect those perspectives in order to form a more accurate and global opinion on family firms. Additionally it has been a glimpse of what GLOCAL life in Göttingen will be, an introduction to the city, the professors and the university.”
