The initiative “School – Economy” has set itself the goal of strengthening the cooperation between students, teachers and South Tyrolean enterprises.

insight into the education of adolescents
According to the motto “Understanding economy – Shaping the future” the initiative enables young people to get in touch with the business and employment world at an early stage. Furthermore, the initiative provides companies with an insight into the education of adolescents.

improvement of internal business
The economy is in need of informed and committed employees that are capable of recognizing economic interrelationships and actively contributing to the improvement of internal business processes. In contrast, schools require companies’ feedback regarding the level of their students’ education.
