TriRhena Consulting e.V.

Since 2009, TriRhena Consulting e.V. has been building bridges between students, universities and business. In its non-profit association, students of all disciplines acquire skills in "finance and law", "presentation techniques", "controlling", "quality management" and many other areas. The aim is to put the theory from their studies into practice. To this end, companies in the region are advised. In 2014, the 105th project was completed. However, students also develop their own concepts, such as "Meet Your Future", which is intended to counteract the local shortage of skilled workers.
