What is the experience of PBC1860 members?
Klara Curk, student: "The opportunity I got to work, co-create and contribute to the company at PBC1860 was truly one of a kind. By working on a variety of projects, gaining a thorough insight into the company and experiencing the openness of the employees, I was able for the first time to apply the knowledge I gained at university. I took part in important meetings and worked with mentors to help shape essential foundations for company operations. Having been forced to step outside my comfort zone, I also achieved personal growth."
