Ablauf der LV bei eingeschränktem Campusbetrieb

This seminar will be held online (Distanzmodus) in WS 2020.

Inhalte der LV

Presenting selected business topics over the course of three presentations: one short (8-12 minutes) prepared presentation, one longer (15-20 minutes) prepared presentation, as well as one shorter (8-12 minutes) unprepared presentation.

For each of the two prepared presentations, students are required to attend a mandatory coaching session (ca. 45 minutes each, dates and times set separately from those of the course itself) with a native speaker of English to examine and refine both presentation and English language skills. Each of the two prepared topics can be chosen by the student with the approval of the instructors. The final ad-hoc presentation will be on a given business topic on the basis of a background article provided by the instructors and a total preparation time of 75 minutes.

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

After completing the course, students will be able to give clearly structured presentations in English, having improved, reinforced and refined their communicative skills to be applied in presentations and discussions.

Regelung zur Anwesenheit

Full attendance is obviously recommended, but participants can miss a maximum of one session if absolutely necessary. Should they be scheduled to present in that session, they will have to give their presentation in another meeting.


The teaching methods used include individual coaching sessions with native speakers and joint review and assessment of presentations.
