Educating Software Developers

Schartner Consulting engaged in a PPP project with DEG to provide professional schooling in software consulting by initiating a university-like training initiative on programming and Electronic Data Processing (EDP) technology lasting three academic semesters. Schartner provided both software and instructors. Approximately 50 study spaces have already been created. Furthermore, the market for BOB’s World is about to be upgraded: a worldwide, Internet-based, 24-hour support service is currently in the planning stage. Students in the programme will be directly engaged in the construction of this hotline. After the students have completed their studies, Schartner plans to recruit some of its alumni; the others are also likely to benefit from job opportunities in this future-oriented sector.
