Establishment of student companies
"Student companies as a real-world, action-oriented project method open up valuable learning and experience opportunities for students accordingly. They encourage young people to take responsibility and show initiative. Work in student-run companies trains the social and personal skills needed for this, especially motivation and communication skills, planning and organizational skills, assessment and decision-making skills, responsibility and self-confidence. Creativity techniques for finding ideas, methods for project planning as well as the presentation of one's own work additionally promote methodological competencies." (Source: www.fachnetzwerk.net)
