Number of participants
The Manager Training Programme of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is an element of Germany’s foreign trade policy. More than 15,000 managers and decision makers from 21 countries have taken part in the Programme since 1998.
Through this experience, they have become familiar with the German business culture, have gained first-hand practical know-how from visiting German companies and have come into direct contact with potential German business partners.
Due to the Corona pandemic in 2020 und 2021, the Manager Training Programme was adapted to a virtual format: the Virtual Manager Training Programme. Through this format, we are able to continue the work between Egypt and Germany, and deepen the common economic relations. Under the slogan “Fit for Partnership with Germany”, business managers from Egypt, particularly those from small and medium-sized enterprises, receive an 8-week Programme with a training on business competencies and economic cooperation with German companies. This serves the mutual benefit of the two countries.
The Virtual Manager Training Programme provides the participating managers with the possibility to become familiar with the German market, to establish business relationships with German companies and to build long-term partnerships.
The tailored training with German trainers strengthens specific management competencies. Virtually conducted discussions with German managers impart examples of good business practices. Direct business contacts and negotiations provide access to the German market.
