From the 31st of May until the 11th of June 2015 19 students accompanied by Hanno Martens and Prof. Patrick Merten travelled to South Africa. In terms of study programmes the group was as diverse as the South African population and nature turned out to be. Students came from Cologne Business School and the European Management School in Mainz studying General Management, International Culture and Management, Economic Psychology, MBA or International Tourism Management. For a large majority of the group it was the first trip to South Africa. For many it was even the first trip to Africa at all. And now after the trip everybody is sure, it was definitely not their last trip to Africa.
Despite two rainy days in Cape Town after landing. According to the guide Hannu those days were simply bad luck and unlikely for Cape Town. Luckily for the excursion he turned out to be right. The planned activities were quickly rescheduled by Prof. Merten and the guide Hannu to fit the weather conditions.
