Intended learning outcomes

The general aim of the course is that the student should develop a communicative ability in German. This is made in a context where the student develops basic knowledge of German language social systems and an understanding of how national/cultural distinctive features may influence leader style, culture and structures in organisations.

On completion of the course, the student should, in speech and writing, in a way that can be understood by an individual in the German language area, be able to
- describe basic economic social structures in Germany
- identify and discuss culturally distinctive features of organisations in the country/language area
- relate these structures and distinctive features to Swedish conditions

Course content

Through studies of texts, works and material with mainly social and economic contents, the ability to express oneself in a linguistically correct way is trained with contents relevant for the course.

Teaching and working methods

Lectures and seminars.


The course is examined continuously through
- Written assignments. 0 HE credits
- Oral presentations supplemented by a basis for a presentation. 6 HE credits
- Written examination. 4 HE credits

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.


Three-grade scale, U, G, VG

Other information

Planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus. 

The course is carried out in such a way that both men´s and women´s experience and knowledge is made visible and developed.
