At the BIS City Talk at the Schwabing campus of the Bavarian International School (BIS), speakers and the nearly 100 guests agreed that values and life skills must be decisive factors in today's school education. This is the only way to prepare our children for an unknown, rapidly changing future. At the Bavarian International School in Munich and Haimhausen (approx. 1,150 students from over 60 nations), developing the moral compass of children and young people is part of the academic DNA.
The 11th Careers Day of Bavarian International School (BIS) attracted 16 top-class personalities from a wide variety of industries to give students an authentic insight into professions, career paths and future trends.

The event featured speakers from Microsoft, Facebook, SAP, Airbus, Texas Instruments, Linde, The LEGO® Group, Klinikum Dritter Orden, Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, Motel a Miio and many more. BIS welcomed U.S. Consul General Timothy E. Liston as a guest of honor.
You could have heard a pin drop while Natalie Amiri, ARD foreign correspondent, book author and TV presenter ("Weltspiegel"), spoke in the BIS auditorium on Wednesday.

At the "Wearable Art Show" of BIS, approximately 136 students transformed the sports hall of the Haimhausen Campus into the largest catwalk of the region.
