The challenges of the future are closely related to one term in particular: Sustainability. That’s why Bain & Company, together with Futury, a spin-off of the Werte-Stiftung, PreZero, Deutsche Bank, and Handelsblatt Media Group, founded The Mission initiative in 2019. Over three years, teams of young professionals will work on twelve future issues, including education, mobility, consumption, or green banking. All topics were selected based on the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Five innovation teams consisting of international students and young professionals are formed for each future topic. The three to four members of each team belong to different disciplines. In addition to academic achievements, the selection criteria also include non-academic commitment and the individual motivation of the applicants. Sounds exciting?
