International office of our faculty contributes towards efforts of the faculty to provide its students with experiences and opportunities to enrich not only their students’ life, but their prospects of employment after graduation or even during their studies. This is another component of development of entrepreneurial spirit with our students and academic community – gaining experience, exchanging knowledge and good practice, collaboration, networking, gaining cultural insight, acquiring international certificates and diplomas, increasing employability and competitiveness at labour market are only some of the aspects mobility provides. The focuses of internationalisation of our faculty are:
- International partnerships
- Modernisation of study programs
- Student study experiences
- Teaching staff internationalisation
International partnerships we seek and nurture are meaningful, relevant, strong, innovative, creative, synergetic, mutually beneficial and sustainable. In those frames, academic partnerships we foster are regional, European and global.
Modernisation of study programs entails continious survey of the curricula universities in the areas of our interest provide worldwide, as well as tailoring our programs to suit the needs of our educational process stakeholders including worldwide paragon trends.
Teaching staff internationalisation is regarded as a complex aspect of our internationalisation strategy as well as its core part, since teachers are seen as facilitators and organisers of the educational process. Teaching practices depend on academic staff competences to implement carefully designed programs of study, especially in the specific context of entrepreneurial education. Therefore, exchange of knowledge and practices with colleagues from partner universities, teaching in international context abroad and at home, research collaboration, publishing findings at relevant international journals and conferences, taking part in international projects are all of paramount significance.
Student study experiences in addition to innovative, relevant and internationalised study programs and teaching methods tailored to their needs encompass student mobility.
Student Mobility implies attending one or more semesters of an undergraduate or postgraduate study programme at a foreign university. There are two types of student mobility: exchange and full degree seeking (international students).
Exchange students are those students who, based on the agreements of their home university and a partner foreign university, spend one or more semesters studying at the partner university as a part of his/her own study programme (the effort is officially recognized).
International students actually enrol in a foreign university right after their high school or pursue their undergraduate and postgraduate studies at a university abroad. They do not need to seek their previous educational institution partners from abroad, but choose under their own preferences or opportunities.
Students at home university – host students – are available for any service during the stay of international or exchange students to make their stay more pleasant, culturally richer and more enjoyable, academically more successful. They are organized in teams during their internship and are coordinated by Department of international cooperation of the faculty.
