Vistula University and the Vistula School of Hospitality have strengthened their position as leaders in innovative education. Both institutions have won the 10th, and jubilee edition, of the Polish University Certification Programme: “University of Leaders”. We have already claimed success in this respect, previously.
Education for labour market needs – an important signal for high school graduates
Universities and their organisational units, which stand out on the market with activities focused on educating social leaders and providing effective practical education, are accredited in the “University of Leaders” programme. The title is awarded to the most modern, dynamic universities, closely related to the labour market and economy, while fulfilling the needs of their students with excellent learning conditions. These typify the Vistula Universities, which actively co-operate with the socio-economic environment, and invest in solutions, focused on innovation and building a quality culture.
The “University of Leaders” certificate is an important guide for high school graduates choosing their future place in the next crucial stage of their education. It is also a source of detailed knowledge about the Polish higher education market, as well as indicating the innovative activities of the best Polish universities, and their achievements.
Vistula Universities – valuable certificates and continuous development
Vistula’s Universities, which educate students from over one hundred countries, are constantly developing. For years, they have regularly taken a prominent place on the educational map of Poland, claiming leading positions in the ‘Perspektywy Universities’ ranking. Vistula University, is one of the few universities in Poland, which has the full scope of ACCA accreditation. This opens up for students, a quick path to an international career in accounting and finance. The Management programme, in turn, has obtained the prestigious PMI Global Accreditation Centre certificate for Project Management Education Programmes (GAC). This is proof of the university’s deep commitment to continually improving the quality of its curriculum in project management.
The Vistula School of Hospitality focuses on continuous development, as well. It was the first such institute in Poland, to be accredited by THE-ICE (The International Centre of Excellence in Tourism and Hospitality Education). It is one of the two most important certificates in the world, awarded to universities, educating for the needs of industries dealing with tourism, recreation, events organisation, and culinary arts. It represents the highest quality of education and prestige.
Vistula educates leaders. Education programmes develop the ability to think independently, and act creatively, as well as the ability to flexibly respond to changes. This strategy works especially well, today, and during the coronavirus pandemic, the university successfully implemented online learning in just three days.
Vistula University is a leader in online education, has knowledge, rich experience, and its own tools, trains lecturers, creates their own multi-media materials, works on teaching methodology, and constantly consults with students about it. The University for six years has been conducting online studies, professionally prepared for Finance and Accounting, Economics, and Management programmes.
The offer will include English-language online programmes from October, and if necessary, also others. The number of students who choose online studies at Vistula is, therefore, constantly growing.
