Wirtschaftswochen - Ernst Schmidheiny Foundation
Since 1974, the Ernst Schmidheiny Foundation has hosted thousands of Business Weeks at Swiss high schools and has thereby furthered the understanding of more than 90,000 students to date in the field of business. A corporate planning game developed specifically for the purpose and overseen by experienced business managers sees the students take on the role of an executive board member.
Since their inception, UBS has supported the Business Weeks financially, as well as with dedicated volunteers. Many of the bank's managers help out as course tutors, providing the young people with concrete support in their professional career.
