The donation year “CBS Cares for” at the Cologne Business School is marked by great dedication to charitable purposes. The campaign year was launched on the occasion of the university’s 25th anniversary. CBS has already donated more than € 26,000 to social institutions. The students Matteo Bachmann, Frederike Buhl, Neil Jordaan and Cristina Kremer have now joined forces for charitable associations and donated their IACBE Case-Competition award.
The team had participated in the case study competition of the International Accreditation Council for Business Education and convinced the jury with their business cases. The prize of $ 1000 was distributed in equal parts to the three social projects wünschdirwas e. V. (Wish Fulfilment Organization for Children and Young People with Diseases), Kölner Flüchtlingsrat e. V. (Cologne Refugee Council) and Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder e. V. (Charity for Children and Young People with Cancer).
“Our team has planned to donate our entire award if we win. We started the competition with this motivation and were happy that we could keep our word,” said Matteo Bachmann. The students had decided to support regional projects that are committed to children and refugees.
