Wir zitieren hiermit einen Text aus der „Olive Hill Press“ (Ausgabe April) vom „Canada College“, der über den Besuch der Professorin Lale Yurtseven auf Einladung von Frau Heinemann berichtet:

„Business Professor Lale Yurtseven recently visited a high school in Germany close to the high school she attended herself. She was invited to speak to a class of Advanced Economics and a class of Business English students. Students asked Professor Yurtseven questions such as what it’s like to live and work in the United States, how she was able to make the big leap over the Atlantic and what opportunities are there now to study in the United States. Professor Yurtseven shared her personal story of coming to the U.S. and explained the Community College System while providing handouts from Cañada College’s International Student Program.


The students were very interested in the current political climate under the new President and how it may affect the economy, specifically asking about the income gap. The US business climate was then compared with the German climate and students were particularly interested at the innovative and entrepreneurial education opportunities offered in the United States and at Cañada College.
While German tradition encourages students to work toward gaining “safe and lifetime” employment, the younger generation is slowly embracing entrepreneurship and business ownership so students were especially interested in this topic. This was a mutually rewarding experience for both the students and Professor Yurtseven. In the end, Professor Yurtseven learned that the millennial generation has similar concerns and dreams, regardless of where they live.“

Zum Hintergrund des Besuchs:

Wirtschaftstheoretische Positionen von Keynes, de Say, Müller-Armack und Erhard wurden im Fach Politik-Wirtschaft kontrovers diskutiert. Im Kontext der föderalen Ordnung, insbesondere auch im Kontext des Gesetzgebungsverfahrens, diskutierten die Schülerinnen und Schüler des Kurses eN Politik-Wirtschaft (Q1) gemeinsam mit Prof. Lale Yurtseven aus San Francisco und Prof. Torsten Böger, Geschäftsführer der Verkehrsinfrastrukturgesellschaft mbH Berlin. Prof. Yurtseven skizzierte brisante wirtschaftspolitische Entwicklungen in den USA. Prof. Böger und Prof. Yurtseven, Schulfreunde aus Bremen, erlaubten auch Einblicke in ihre berufliche vita. Prof. Yurtseven berichtet von den Willmsern auf der HP des College de Anza.
