Little is generally known about Poland’s history and economy in Switzerland, which may also be why Warsaw is currently not a popular study-abroad destination. The International Management Institute has therefore organised an event that will help you understand how the EU’s fifth largest member state by population has changed after three decades of exceptional economic growth.
At this online event, taking place on 10 May at 6.00 pm, the following guest speakers will share their insights:
- Jürg Burri, Ambassador of Switzerland to Poland
- Prof. Christopher Hartwell, Head of the ZHAW International Management Institute, and author of “Two Roads Diverge – The Transition Experience of Poland and Ukraine”
- Aneta Kocemba-Muchowicz, Managing Director, Head of Credit-Suisse Warsaw
In 2021, Switzerland and Poland celebrate 100 years of Switzerland’s diplomatic presence in Warsaw. In this online event, the Ambassador of Switzerland to Poland, Jürg Burri, will share his insights on bilateral economic relations, which are significant: Swiss companies have created more than 65,000 jobs in Poland.
Christopher Hartwell from ZHAW will present Poland’s development from a communist state to Europe’s region with the strongest economic growth in his talk entitled Poland’s Transition Experience.
