The event was hosted by Alexander Zeitelhack, recently appointed Associate Dean at BSBI, who outlined the vision of the institution in his opening speech. “Our mission is to educate, train and integrate students from all over the world into the German culture and economic landscape.
“Working with international educational and commercial partners, we aim to grow our presence in the higher education sector in Germany. This will benefit our students, who will have access to many career opportunities, and support the industry in the country by generating employment.”
As a testament to BSBI’s commitment in opening new opportunities to students, the event saw the participation of representatives of businesses, education providers and employment sector who share the schools’ values and attention for innovation.
