Theresianum honored as first international business@school school

Participation in business@school by the school for the first time in 2000 marked the beginning of our international expansion. Today, numerous other schools in Austria, Italy, Great Britain, Albania, and Switzerland participate in the project. Antonella Mei-Pochtler, business@school co-founder, along with Rainer Reich, former Senior Partner at Boston Consulting Group and longtime supporter of the educational initiative, conversed with Theresianum students about business, college studies, and careers.

Antonella Mei-Pochtler, BCG Senior Advisor, congratulated the initiative on its anniversary and not only looked back on its success so far, but also to its future: "Thanks to business@school, so many high-school students have given the world their innovations over the last 25 years. This is exactly what will make all the difference in the future, and it's what makes business@school unique."

Like the two founding school visited previously, the school community of the Theresianum also received a check for 500 Euro to support school digitalization. It was fantastic to see so many members of our network for life in Vienna and to hear their exciting stories.
