Girls' Day 2024
Girl's Day 2024

In the "production" business game for waffles on 25.04.2024, all the schoolgirls were able to put their managerial skills to the test and learn about business management aspects. In their own company, they decided which waffles should be produced and at what price, and sustainability aspects were also included. A great experience in which the girls were able to demonstrate their leadership skills and make important decisions. The event may even have sparked an interest in a career in management in some of them!
