Excerpt from the College TODAY, “Since the last German-American Business Summit (GABS) in February of 2020 a lot has happened at the College of Charleston, and we’re not just talking about the pandemic. Last fall, the College began offering its first-ever major in engineering – systems engineering – with some of the 200-plus German companies in the Palmetto state helping to design the curriculum.
Not surprisingly, those two topics will be front and center at the fifth annual conference on Feb. 4, 2021, held virtually from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. CofC’s German program; the School of Languages Cultures, and World Affairs; the Career Center; and the School of Business will put on the summit in partnership with The Citadel and Trident Technical College.
“This year we are pivoting to a virtual event and are looking forward to the chance to cast a wider net in terms of audience participants, as well as panelists, who will join us from locations throughout the U.S. and in Germany,” says Morgan Koerner, the chair of the Department of German and Russian Studies who founded the event.”
