The evening was opened by keynote speaker Dr. Dieter Siegel, co-owner and former CEO of Rosenbauer International AG. In his speech to the MBA graduates, Dr. Siegel focused on the fast pace of today's society, initiated by constant technological progress. Tomorrow's managers are confronted with new challenges on a daily basis. Despite all the digital and intelligent systems that now make our everyday work easier, people are and will remain irreplaceable. This is the asset of every successful company that the managers (of tomorrow) should continue to focus on in the future.
