The world’s leading industrial space developer and one of the best business colleges in Europe have formed a strategic partnership. This is the biggest partnership financially and the most substantive formed by the academy with a business so far.
The Leon Koźmiński University is a business school that is ranked among the highest in Europe*. It effectively combines business theory and practice and attracts the best students and the best researchers from the fields of management, finances and economics. Panattoni is the unrivalled leader of the industrial space market** and has shaped the real estate market over the last 18 years thus affecting the economies of Europe.
“Our collaboration with Panattoni is the Academy's largest financial partnership with a business to date as well as its most significant. It is a strong relationship built on a foundation of dialogue, shared values and mutual trust. We believe that together with such a strong partner as Panattoni, we will change Polish business education and take cooperation between the academy and business to a whole new level, and Panattoni now joins us as the number 1. We are very pleased with our vision of jointly developing business and education, which is now our joint responsibility," says Prof. Grzegorz Mazurek, the Rector of Koźmiński University.
“This is an exceptional day, through our partnership with the Academy we are opening a new chapter in the history of the relationship between education and business. We want to share what is most precious and readily available, which is our knowledge of the market and our practices built up through 18 years of doing business and influencing the market. The people of Panattoni are the best practitioners of management, investment, organising projects, communications and sustainable development. We are also going to advise Koźmiński University on their Curriculum Board so that what they offer is even more interesting, practical and future-orientated for both the students and their future employers. Panattoni’s presence also offers real support to the Academy's materials making its students stand out. The word ‘development’ is the quintessence of our partnership. Koźmiński University is a modern academy recognised throughout the entire world, which is the reason for our decision. I believe that working together in business and education through the sharing of knowledge, critical thinking, strategy and creativity is the best way to look to the future,” says Robert Dobrzycki, the CEO and co-owner of Panattoni Europe, Panattoni UK and Panattoni India.
The collaboration between Panattoni and Koźmiński University is a long-term agreement. In October 2023 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the academy, the partners will be presenting their latest innovative projects that combine research with business.
