We keep in touch with the practitioners
To initiate professional cooperation with companies we decided to learn about their actual needs and expectations. We surveyed 300 entrepreneurs followed by in depth discussions in focus groups with the participation of human resources representatives. On that basis we will develop Good Cooperation Practice for cooperation between universities and business. We will also be able to improve our education offer and make it more suitable for the needs of entrepreneurs.
Globalizer – Polish companies on foreign markets
Our University completes the innovative Globalizer project in which foreign students help Polish companies to enter the markets of the countries of their origin. In result the students combine writing their thesis with conducting advanced international analytical and business activities. Our Faculties aim at a high level of diploma exams to be performed in the form of group projects completed at the entrepreneurs’ request. Also the subjects’ syllabuses provide mandatory visits by business practitioners.
Entrepreneurs find our students valuable
Our career centre prepares students for professional training and internships and cooperates with employers to make the internship interesting and beneficial to both sides. More and more companies are addressing us with employment offers for our students, and the best ones have an opportunity to get employed. What is more, there are meetings with the employers during which the employers can present their own case studies to the students as well as the Job Spot Fair trade once a year. This all gives the image of a modern university that is aware of the contemporary market challenges and sees cooperation with companies as its priority.
