    Entrepreneurship is key to the success of a country’s economy, particularly in challenging economic times. In the “CAS in Entrepreneurship” course at the University of Bern, which aims to promote entrepreneurship in Switzerland, lecturers with a wealth of specialist knowledge and practical expertise share their experience and provide a platform for an interactive exchange with high-profile figures from the business world. Because entrepreneurship is such an important topic, KPMG sponsors this program.
