Blended Total Immersion Week - Advanced Regional and Transversal Skills

February 2024 in Spain: Tech Challenge

5th Pan-European FWPM as Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme on the Campus of the Universidad de Málaga in Spain

From February 19-23, 2024 (plus short online preparational and follow-up activities in the days before and after this period), the English-language FWPM "Blended Total Immersion WeekAdvanced Regional and Transversal Skills" will take place for the fifth time as part of the new Erasmus+ programme track "Blended Intensive Programme (BIP)" on the downtown campus of the TH AB partner institution Universidad de Málaga, in Spain. Beyond its 16 sunny beaches, this Andalusian city on the Costa del Sol shores of the Mediterranean has a fascinating cultural side. The birthplace of the painter Pablo Picasso and the Hollywood star Antonio Banderas has reinvented itself in recent years, inaugurating museums for all tastes. If you take the combination of culture and the sea and add a lively atmosphere, numerous tapas served in bars, cutting-edge neighbourhoods, areas like the port that have transformed and become more modern and monuments with centuries of history like the Alcazaba and the Gibralfaro Castle, the result is a city full of passion that anyone would want to explore.

The FWPM is creditable with 5 ECTS towards the profile "BW/BWR International". A total of five places are available for students from Aschaffenburg UAS. The other participants come from our partner universities in France (Université de Bretagne-Sud), Spain (Universidad Málaga), Finland (Turku UAS) and Sweden (Mid Sweden University). The elective is hosted by one of these European partners in turn each semester and took place for the first time in March 2022 organised by Aschaffenburg UAS.

The motto of the BIP at the Universidad de Málaga is "Tech Challenge"; the participants will jointly solve different managerial problems related to technologies in real companies. During this BIP, students of all fields of business administration will learn more about advanced technologies available for companies in the market and have the experience of living the cultural, technological and business spirit of Málaga which is also known for its high-end Tech Park. Students do not require any tech or engineering background as this BIP is designed for business students who are interested in and prepared to accept tech challenges.

The BIP’s underlying concept of Total Immersion includes a language taster course in Spanish/tandem partnerships as well as cultural activities like immersing themselves in Andalusian-Spanish culture and taking part in excursions matching the motto – in addition to subject-specific and intercultural content.
