From Brazil to USA, from China to Spain:
The International Network of the Practice Enterprises

There are about 500 practice enterprises in Germany. Their work is coordinated by the central office of the »German Practice Enterprise Network«, located in Essen. Like in Germany, there are »Central Offices« in more than 40 countries. They are connected internationally by the Practice Enterprises Network »EUROPEN - PEN International«. The worldwide network stands for:

  • approximately 7,000 practice enterprises at schools, colleges, universities, vocational academies, enterprises, and training centers.
  • Central Offices in more than 40 countries worldwide, for example in Canada, USA, Brazil, Argentina, Malaysia, China and Kenya, as well as in almost every European country. The membership applications from countries like Colombia, South Korea, Turkey, and Singapore are being considered at the moment.
  • business management training of high quality for thousands of people every year, regardless of age.

Current Development of Participation

We hope to receiving a great number of registrations from all over the world. We will keep you informed about the current level of registration here soon after application deadline.

Currently we are working on searching for supporters and collecting funds to enable practice enterprises from foreign countries, which are classified by EUROPEN - PEN International as eligible for funding, taking into account their GDP and economic situation.
