Dear ITS Students,

Hochschule Darmstadt Universityof Applied Sciences (Germany) invited ITS students to join “Winter University Program 2020 at Hochschule Darmstadt”.

This program is the 4th International Winter University Program at Hochschule Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences.

This English taught winter course will take place from December 30, 2019 – January 18, 2020. Students can choose between two modules:

1) International Marketing and Sales

This module deals with the growing importance of Marketing Management for the success of a product and the company. Students will learn how to manage complex international marketing concepts. Different requirements of BtoB and BtoC customer segments, various industries as well as of selling services or products are considered in this module study. By the end of the course, students should be able to conceptualize an international marketing concept and an international sales strategy.

Planned academic excursions:

  • Marketing case study at Brita Arena (soccer arena) in Wiesbaden
  • Opel Automobile (marketing presentations, case studies, factory tour)

syllabus can be found at here 

2) Design of Healthy Cities – Mobility of the Future

In the 1890s, the “Rover Safety Bicycle” entered the market. It had lead in German cities to a first discussion about safety and speed in the street (R. Bauer): Slow pedestrians and racing bicycles fighting for their share of the street. This discussion came up again in the 1920s and 1930s and especially after WWII for cars and slow pedestrians especially in the US. The street became the space for cars. Not for pedestrians. The so-called “jaywalker” – comparable to today’s texting and walking inhabitants of the city – was removed from the street to the side (P. Norton). In the case study “Middletown” (Lynd/Lynd 1929) we find the observation that the car changed the town center from a meeting point of people to a traffic junction of cars.

What are city streets for? This is a crucial question. Small measures like greening the facades of houses, to plant a few trees, to establish playgrounds, or one way roads, to implement electric mobiles, inner city toll, or pedestrian zones in cities is not enough to design a healthy city. A more radical and fundamental approach is needed: At the center of a healthy city project is the necessity to bring the pedestrian back into the street and to turn the power hierarchy in the city defined by speed and horsepower upside down. “Slow is beautiful!”
