Team Building Workshop at SIU Madrid

 

Yesterday, the students at Schiller’s Madrid campus had the opportunity to attend a crash course on International Management Skills given by Wim Zwaenepoel, a Communication Specialist. The workshop was organized by our amazing Career Services Department.

Here is what Lucía Martín de Vidales Noagles, one of our International Relations students, told us about her experience:

“The course, which focused on team building, began with an interactive explanation on the way teams work and how international companies can benefit from successful teams. The presentation also covered the challenges we might have to face when working as a team, which we could later see for ourselves when the most dynamic part of the course started. We performed two different exercises divided in teams. Although both of them required creativity and quick thinking, the first one focused on discussing and reaching an agreement, while the second focused on working together to achieve a specific goal.

It was a very interesting and dynamic activity that helped us to improve our team working skills in an enjoyable way.”

SIU Madrid Visits Coca-Cola

 

Being a student at Schiller International University is not only about the classes, books, and long hours studying, but also about the amazing opportunities to discover the business world that surround our culture. That is why our faculty and staff are constantly thinking about giving our students a glimpse of what the business world outside our walls is like.

This week our students had the opportunity to visit the Coca-Cola Factory in Valencia, Spain. There, they had the chance to visit the museum and get to know more about the company and how it rose to where it is today. The visit was scheduled by our Graduate Program Director, Edgar Barroso, as part of the activities that our students have throughout the semester. It encouraged our students to further their knowledge in pursuit of their goals and enriched their university experience.

The Coca-Cola company is an American multinational beverage corporation based in Atlanta, Georgia. Its main source of revenue comes from manufacturing, distributing and selling nonalcoholic beverage concentrates and syrups all over the world.

Coca-Cola’s Vision:

  • To refresh the world…
  • To inspire moments of optimism and happiness…
