International Business Podium: Poland - Europe's Most Dynamic Economy?

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. This event will help you understand how the EU’s fifth largest member state by population has changed after three decades of exceptional economic growth.

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, according to a recent study. In addition, Christopher Hartwell, Head of the International Management Institute at ZHAW, will discuss Poland’s transition 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: the Warsaw School of Economics (SGH), where students of the MSc in International Business can benefit from a Double Degree.

Guest Speakers:

  • Jürg Burri, Ambassador of Switzerland to Poland
