In this Study-Abroad option for fulfilling the Globalization Experience Requirement, Purdue University Polytechnic Statewide students will participate in a multifaceted Central European Multinational Automobile Organization Supply Chain Experience. Students will tour the BMW factory in Munich, Germany; the Volkswagen facility in Prague, Czech Republic; the second-largest European port in Hamburg, Germany; and the largest European port in Rotterdam, Netherlands.  Students will also participate in tours in those cities based on two themes: Cultural Immersions and the History of Capitalism/Trade.  

The four cities selected for this trip were chosen as venues because of their proximity, influence, and linkage to the most successful automobile production region of Europe. In order of visit, they are:

Munich, Germany
Prague, Czech Republic
Hamburg, Germany
Rotterdam, Netherlands

These cities all have rich histories of industrial competitiveness in the international marketplace, and their economies are thriving in large part due to the impact of their automobile supply chains.
