It’s continued growth is enormously important for the city and the entire metropolitan area. Two-third of all containers in the port are handled by the Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (translated: Hamburg port and logistics AG). It is therefore the biggest company in the harbour and has not only responsibility for its employees but for the whole city and even for the whole metropolitan area. In order to use its potential and to increase the container capacity of the harbour, to construct new hinterland terminals and to expand the geographical reach of the railway network the city of Hamburg had to think about new ways to acquire long-term capital. Hamburg senate decided for an IPO of the so far 100% state- owned company. The decision for an IPO entailed premises, obstacles and risks on the one hand but on the other had decisive augments. The implementation included motives but also preparatory program of analyses, calculations and options. This term paper will illuminate why the expansion of Hamburg’s harbour is so important for the metropolitan area and why the Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (in the following HHLA) plays such a major role in this field. It will introduce the IPO process and indicate the motives for it. The paper “IPO of HHLA” will further attend the offering of HHLA shares, the costs and risks of it.

Semester HAW Hamburg, 49 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The following paper deals with the topic “Cultural Due Diligence and Cultural Clash” using the example of Daimler and Chrysler’s merger in 1998.

In detail the term paper therefore indicate tools that are being used to get to know the culture of a company and introduce theoretical as well as practical approaches. Whenever it is possible a connection to DaimlerChrysler and their Cultural Due Diligence is given.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,0, Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Wirtschaft / AIM), course: KUSO Prof. Dr. Iken, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Ethnic entrepreneurship has experienced significant development during the last decade. Today 8.7% of all immigrants in Germany run their own businesses (Plahuta, 2004, p.1). In the year 2003, 286.000 self-employed migrants were counted in Germany. Out of this number the Turks represent the biggest group with 60.000 entrepreneurships (Leicht, 2005, p.6). Of 10.000 Turkish workers 197 launched their own business as opposed to 122 business foundations among the German population (ibid, p.7). Even though the Turks outnumber the German business foundations, they also experience a higher rate in closedowns (ibid). In some German cities, four out of five Turkish business foundations fail, according to Dr. René Leicht (2005, ‘Die Rheinpfalz’). He opens the thesis that this high number is at least partly due to the fact that Turks rather prefer to open their businesses in branches and areas dominated by their own people. As a result of this concentration, Turkish businesses solely depend on the purchasing power of their fellow immigrants. Besides, they unnecessarily create a highly competitive market. Since the preference to live and work in an area inhabited primarily by one’s own nationality indicates a rather limited integration, we are going to examine whether integration in general is a driver for financial business success.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Interkulturelle Kommunikation, Note: keine, Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften Hamburg, Veranstaltung: KUSO an der FH Hamburg Internationales Management 2. Semester, 14 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Successful business men and women who come in contact with a variety of people and cultures quickly learn the meanings behind common gestures and body movements in different cultures. Only the unsuccessful businessperson fails to learn the importance of those when talking with potential clients. When we talk with our gestures and movements, a variety of meanings can be generated. Especially during introductory situations a person must know the appropriate greeting in order to convey the intended content. To nod, bow, kiss, shake hands, smile, wave, touch cheeks, or rub noses are common greetings used in various parts of the world. Use an inappropriate gesture and the door may never open to you. Intercultural interactions are never without some problems. Linguistic barriers are compounded by differences in nonverbal communication. Actually, nonverbal communication comprises a big block within communication as a whole. The nonverbal communication takes up around 65-70 percent of the meaning conveyed by a spoken message. It is widely accepted and known that nonverbal communication-especially gestures and body movements-bring the potential to get along better with different cultures and, of course, with business partners. Although it is very time-consuming, learning these signals, brings so many positive aspects that it is worth the trouble of learning the nuances and differences. Nonverbal communication as indicated above is a big topic. Breaking it down shows that it consists of many more subparts. Gestures and body movements are one of the most important aspects of nonverbal communication. By analyzing all gestures and body movements I want to show the different interplay of intent, comprehension and impact people can cause to international business processes and their outcomes by interacting with one another in different cultures.
