Dr. Andreas Brandstetter, the CEO of the International Insurance Group – UNIQA, honored us with his presence in the first event of the ‘fireplace talks’.


Lauder Business School Placement Center had the honour of welcoming Dr. Andreas Brandstetter, CEO of the UNIQA Group, to kick off the first talk of a series of interactive presentations, called ‘fireplace talks’. The Uniqua Group is one of the leading insurance groups in several markets in Austria and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

The LBS Alumni and faculty members, participating in this talk, were introduced by Dr. Brandstetter to two topics; ‘the challenges faced in today’s globalized world’ and ‘key factors of business’ success’. A vibrant and interactive talk emerged with Dr. Brandstetter due to many questions posed by the audience.

Afterwards the event received superb acclaim from both Dr. Branstetter and LBS students and alumni. LBS Placement Center is looking forward to building future corporations with the UNIQA Insurance Group aiming at creating possible job and intern opportunities for LBS Graduates.
