When thinking of German businesses, we usually mean West German ones. To add nuance to this perspective, this event will focus on two successful East German companies that had to restart after 1989 when Communism fell and the German government privatized thousands of companies. While some did not succeed, the numerous stories of those that thrived are often overlooked. Moderator: Jan Musenkamp, University of Pittsburgh Panelist: Wendy Carlin, University College of London. Florian Mezger from Carl Zeiss Gunter Steinmetz from Bauerfeind AG Students will have to opportunity to question the companies about internship opportunities.
