Students are interested in business topics, that is what the "business@school" educational initiative of the Boston Consulting Group is all about

Commerzbank's coaches and their student teams 2015

The program bridges the gap between school and business and combines the best of both worlds. The aim is to convey economic topics in a clear and practical manner throughout the entire school year of the high school.

Commerzbank has been supporting the education initiative since 2010: Currently over 30 Commerzbank members are active nationwide as volunteer school counselors. Their role is not that of a teacher, but that of an expert and coach. They support the students with their expertise and help them with practical tips from everyday work.

About business@school

The aim of the business@school educational initiative of the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) is to provide students with practical business knowledge and key qualifications for their future professional life. For this purpose, business@school is continuously being developed with the participating teachers. Every year, more than 1,000 students take advantage of the opportunity to take a break in business air for ten months together with their teachers and citizens' employees from more than 20 partner companies and BCG. As the highlight of the project year, the young people can test their own entrepreneurial qualities: In teams, they themselves develop business ideas together with sustainable business plans, with which they compete with each other.
