24 Jul: German for Enterprise project supports Yorkshire exports (Demo)

Businesses in Yorkshire, Lancashire and the Humber with trade connections in Germany or Austria, or those companies keen to expand into the German market, are invited to work with our students on a language-business project: German for Enterprise. Germany is the UK’s second biggest trading partner so this is a prime opportunity for Sheffield students to get acquainted with the UK’s export drive, and for local businesses to get the edge in doing business with German-speaking companies.

The content of the project is based around the unique business needs of the participating companies. Selected businesses team up with our Year 4 students with the full support of the university’s language experts as well as our Sheffield University Enterprise Unit.
