Therefore, our agreements with educational institutions are of utmost importance as we help students with practical knowledge sharing, providing them the opportunity to learn the secrets behind building billion-dollar brands. They can discover career paths they never thought of. They can familiarize themselves with breakthrough innovations and work processes that intertwine with everyday life, where new ideas take flight,” added Kristina Pásztoroková, the Managing Director of Procter & Gamble Hungary.
