Poland – Europe’s Most Dynamic Economy? ZHAW Event on 10 May 2021

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:

Schweizer Botschafter

Jürg Burri, Ambassador of Switzerland to Poland


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.

The ZHAW School of Management and Law has a strong partner in Poland with the Warsaw School of Economics (SGH), where students of the MSc in International Business can benefit from a Double Degree.
