More than 4,000 students are currently enrolled at the University of Debrecen’s Faculty of Business and Economics. Students and prospective employers expect practice-oriented training that meets market needs. This is why the new English-language business career guidance course is so important, bringing young people closer to the service sector. This is the seventh course to be organized in cooperation between the Debrecen BSC Round Table and the university.
“Business career development course in English to be launched at the University of Debrecen- The aim of this is to bring them closer to the world of work and to put them into a cycle that will help them meet future challenges,” Szilveszter Megyesi, Director of 4IG, said.
The course will also focus on effective communication, IT skills, systems thinking, self-management, and project management. Eleven lectures will be given by experts from ten companies of the Debrecen BSC Roundtable, during which they will impart knowledge to young people through real-life examples.
Anett Polocz, Managing Director of Cosmo Consult, said that they can get closer to the students, bring them closer to the labor market, and they can transfer up-to-date, practical knowledge to the students. It is an excellent opportunity for the university to bring in practical education. They can give students the knowledge to help them cope with the labor market conditions when they leave the university walls.
The one-semester course is worth three credits. The university, and within it the Faculty of Economics, pays special attention to the organization and support of practice-oriented training, Mónika Rákos, Deputy Dean of Education at the university, said.
Due to Debrecen’s ever-strengthening economic environment, the recent industrial and production developments in the municipality, and the expectations of these, it is essential to provide a human resource that will represent the right potential for future employees, said Mónika Rákos.
This course is the seventh of the courses organized in cooperation between the Debrecen BSC Round Table and the University.
