  • “We educate changemakers” – “wir bilden Menschen aus, die die Weltverändern”. Das ist der selbstbewusste Slogan der kleinen Wirtschaftsschule “Know Mads” in Amsterdam. Um diesem Anspruch gerecht zu werden, machen die Knowmads ungefähr alles anders als jede Uni. Lehrpläne für das einjährige Studium gibt es nicht, Prüfungen auch nicht, die Studierenden sollen hier in erster Linie herausfinden, was sie wirklich machen wollen. Der Name “Knowmads” setzt sich übrigens aus den Bestandteilen “know” wie wissen und “Mad” wie verrückt zusammen. Der Schulleiter ist deswegen auch weder überrascht noch beleidigt, wenn man zu ihm sagt, dass die Ausbildung etwas verrückt und chaotisch klingt. Er gibt einem recht und sagt: genau das brauchen wir in dieser unberechenbaren Welt. Kilian Pfeffer berichtet. Listen to the mp3 (in German) of the recording here
