International School Augsburg (ISA): Investment in den Rohstoff Bildung

Die in Gersthofen bei Augsburg ansässige International School Augsburg (ISA) plant als erste internationale Schule in Deutschland den Gang an die Börse und macht damit erstmals das Thema „Bildung“ unter ESG-Kriterien investierbar. Die ISA, an der derzeit rund 330 Schüler eingeschrieben sind, ist als internationale Schule Teil eines globalen Schulnetzwerkes, welches das in Deutschland anerkannte IB-Diploma als Hochschulzugangsberechtigung anbietet. Im Rahmen des geplanten Campus-Neubaus sollen die Kapazitäten erweitert und damit die hohe Nachfrage nach privaten Bildungsleistungen in Deutschland und in der Region erfüllt werden. GBC-Analyst Cosmin Filker hat mit dem ISA-Vorstand Marcus Wagner gesprochen.
