"As partner in this long-standing cooperation, we greatly appreciate the collaboration with the Institute for Organization Design under the direction of Prof. Dr. Patricia Klarner.

This partnership has proven to be extremely valuable, especially through the innovative approaches and solutions that the student teams regularly develop in the Institute's project courses. This collaboration not only provided valuable insights into strategic and organizational challenges, but also enabled us to attract talented new employees to our company.

In addition, our participation as guest speakers in the Institute's courses offers an excellent platform to discuss practical experiences with students. I personally found the exchange with managers and students - the Leaders of tomorrow - as part of the Leadership Conversations series to be particularly inspiring.

We look forward to continuing this valuable collaboration and the further impetus it will bring to our company and the future generation of leaders."

"There are three reasons we should listen to our next generation of business leaders: they bring new ideas, they are on top of newest research developments, and most of all they help us to think outside the box.

I therefore want to mention how much we appreciate working together with talented students from the IOD - Institute for Organization Design, WU Vienna University of Economics and Business, led by Prof. Dr. Patricia Klarner.

We gained a lot of interesting insights and new ideas from our successful cooperation!"
