Summer School 2016

The International Summer School in Entrepreneurship – Organization Management Accounting was held from 24th July 2016 to 30th July 2016 in Italy, Naples. This first intensive programme offered by #empl-oi, had the ambition to test a new material developed on social entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial skills (online courses). The content development of these online courses (outlined by the University of Lodz) is a way of providing input from the labor market actors (two companies: Advantic Systemas y Servicios SL and Fundacja Rozwoju Przedsiebiorczosci – FRP will organize workshops in addition to courses). Therefore, the principle of close business-university cooperation can be put into effect and the practical perspective in the academic approach can be ensured.

Students were the main beneficiaries of the Summer School. They worked on the material so that educators could analyse the workflow, student reaction, and the overall value of the tasks to improve the material before launching it to a wider target audience. Successful participation was awarded by 3 ECTS.

During the stay, company representatives gave lectures/workshops/trainings/presentations/ solving real-life challenges defined by employers.
