Business Meets Tech: BIS chair supports new WHU student initiative

Over the course of the past year, a group of WHU students has been engaged in raising the awareness for the importance of novel technologies for business success among the WHU student body. The initiative now gained the official status of a student initiative at WHU as Business Meets Tech (BMT) - The WHU Tech Initiative! BIS chair is proud to support the initiative as academic advisor. We congratulate the team and wish to all involved a successful start and many interesting activities!

From the BMT team announcement: "Tackling the challenges of new and disruptive developments in the technology sector, we have a clear mission in order to increase the qualification and diversity of our student education:
