Virtual SML Study Trip 2020 to China and Vietnam

ZHAW School of Management and Law organizes an annual study trip to China and Vietnam. 25 SML students visit subsidiaries of Swiss companies in Asia and learn first-hand about international business relations. This year the trip could not be carried out due to the corona pandemic. In the alternative program of this elective module, experts from Asia and Switzerland gave online lectures via video link for the students. Four groups of students produced vlogs on Swiss industries that are particularly affected by the corona crisis in economic business relations with Asia:

Students: Noa Bechtiger, Nicola Brunn, Alexander Lerch, Mihovci Donika, Letizia Reimann, Manuel Uebersax

Students: Marc Burkhalter, Miriam Dall’Agnolo, Simon Fausch, Chris Heinz, Sunny Hossin, Lilian Jäger

Students: Adrian Cheybani, Kyra Diago, Vanessa Graf, Philippe Hartung, Marco Neininger Sari Fatma

Students: Marco Baumgartner, Matthias Loser, Nino Luise, Gina Mazzoni, Renato Mettler
