The week is slowly coming to an end. However, the last day promises many great opportunities for the students to network with possible future employers. Indeed, partners of the International Student Projects came to Olten and presented their interesting career opportunities to the students. The atmosphere was pleasantly relaxed and many enlightening discussions took place. At the same time, the students were also able to take advantage of nextcareer’s offer and have their CV checked.
Overall, the career fair was a great success and we would like to thank all our partners for their engagement!
After lunch, everybody had found themselves seated in the Aula A030 for a final Panel Discussion about “International Collaboration”. With Prof. Michael Jeive this time being the host of the discussion, the four panellists Dr. Ensar Can, Project Manager at Economiesuisse, Dr. Stefan Hirschberg, Head of Laboratory for Energy Systems at the Paul Scherrer Institute, Markus Mader, Director at the Swiss Red Cross, and Mark Moser, internationally experienced Lecturer at the FHNW School of Business, shared their extensive knowledge among each other. The experts stressed the key learnings from a successfull international collaboration.
At the very end, we were truly happy to welcome Prof. Dr. Mathias Binswanger, Economist and Lecturer at the FHNW School of Business. He illustrated the relation between economic growth and happiness, and stated that in a developed society, growth does not equal happiness.
