1 ENTREPRENURIAL UNIVERSITIES NETWORK DSFFJ Developing Skills for Future Jobs

2 The project The project The objectives of the project include forming networks of professors and students and creating a group of consulting employers, which will be established in order to build long-term relationships between higher education institutions and business sector. Higher education institutions will bring all interested representatives of small and medium enterprises to join the group and share knowledge and experiences with students through workshops, lectures and offer them valuable work areas which will be published on the web page of the project. The creation of web page Network of Entrepreneurial Universities is planned during 2014 and it will be a place for all communication and the formation of the aforementioned networks. Four institutions participate in this project - Novia University of Applied Sciences from Finland, Instituto Universitario da Maia (ISMAI) from Portugal, Faculty for Commercial and Business Sciences from Slovenia and our University College. Higher education institutions brought all interested representatives of small and medium enterprises to join the group and share knowledge and experiences with students through workshops, lectures and offer them valuable work areas which will be published on the web page of the project. The creation of web page Network of Entrepreneurial Universities was planned during 2014 and it is created to be a place for all communication and the formation of the aforementioned networks. While preparing project proposal, project managers thought carefully about specific objectives and project activities. Even though time for implementation of the project was predicted for period of only 1 year, activities were planned very ambitiously and carefully, so that they fit in general and specific objectives of this proposal: to equip students with the right mix of entrepreneurial, ICT and foreign language skills for their future jobs with the aim to facilitate employment transitions from education to work to intensify cooperation between the providers of education, training and businesses through students initiatives to target the key growth areas for employment: resource-efficient economy ( green economy ) and the digital economy (ICT sector) to establish Professors Platform of Entrepreneurial Education for exchanging good practices, enhancing their mobility and competences - which will encourage mutual learning and introduction of new innovative approaches in teaching to develop the Action Plan for Development of Entrepreneurial Education at HEI s in EU to establish University Entrepreneurial Teams as students initiative for implementation of entrepreneurial activities at their HEI s, facilitating development of their skills sets to develop entrepreneurial, digital and foreign language competences of students, promoting lifelong learning and preparing them for the real business world to establish a web platform Entrepreneurial Universities Network as a main tool of implementing entrepreneurial education at higher education institutions (HEI s) with the aim to have students with employable skills and to disseminate the best practices in education/business world cooperation to all interested institutions to establish Employer Advisory Groups with companies representatives that will ensure long-term relationships between HEI s

3 The project The project meetings and business world, through exchange of knowledge and experience, lectures, placements, networking events and career days. Transnational cooperation created the environment to build up mutual trust and commitment amongst all included participants. Participants are now more aware about differences and specifics of different countries in: economic state and trends, doing business, educational systems, innovative approaches in teaching entrepreneurship, different periods of academic years and other. Rising awareness of European issues e.g. resource-efficient or green economy is added value of the project, as well as development of initiatives and tools to assess and promote the employability of graduates on European market. During the first project meeting in Zagreb, in January 2014, Professor João Carvalho held a lecture titled Advanced Business Creation Model and Professor Helena Nordström held a lecture Teaching entrepreneurship & sustainable development in Finland. MSc Tatjana Dolinšek joined Prof. Dragan Stanković for the job shadowing session within the course Integrated Management of the Enterprise. He presented the course and students and mentors work in Student Business Incubator. The work of our Incubator and student enterprises that have been established from the very beginning of the University College was an interesting topic to discuss with project partners when it comes to this project, but also future follow-ups. Rising students awareness of the importance of the developing their competences through different activities, international cooperation and team work, but also improvement of competences and mobility of professors, through international lectures, job shadowing, trainings and implementing project activities, are the most valuable parts of this project. Experiences we shared, people we met and cooperated with are the biggest added value to this project.

4 The project meetings The project meetings At the second project meeting in Celje, in March 2014, Professor Jose Luís Reis presented the topic Entrepreneurship and Business Incubation Centres in Portugal and Professor Anton Florijan Barišić encouraged students to think about the topic Role of Management and Consulting in Entrepreneurial Learning. Professor Helena Nordstrom participated in the job shadowing session, which was also organized at Faculty of Commercial and Business Sciences. Slovenian students prepared a little surprise for all the participants of the project meeting. Third project meeting was held in Turku, Finland and apart from the presentation on the project activities realized so far and the experience of each of the partner institutions, we had an opportunity to listen to two very interesting lectures. Mateja Skornik from Faculty for Commerical and Business Sciences presented a very current theme Web 2.0 and the Rise of Social Media and Marina Nikolic from UCEEM-NSZ spurred a debate on the importance of Marketing Plan with her theme Why is Marketing plan so important Croatian Experience. Apart from attending the lecture of Ms Nikolic, the students had an opportunity to present their Marketing Plans to Finnish students and listen to their questions and comments during live broadcast. Job shadowing was organized this time for 2 professors - Professor Marjana Merkač Skok and Professor João Carvalho.

5 The project meetings Project partners During the fourth meeting, in Portugal, in October 2014, four professors involved in the project gave lectures - Štefka Gorenak on CSR management practices by SME s - case studies from Slovenia, Åsa Hagberg-Andersson on Networks and Knowledge Development, Anton Florijan Barišić on Entrepreneurial education - practice in Croatia and João M. S. Carvalho again on Advanced Business Creation Model (ABCM). At the same time, Petra Palić and Marina Nikolić participated in job shadowing session s with Tatjana Dolinšek, Elisabete Fernandes and Åsa Rehn, who are all working on this project as Financial Managers or Accountant, where they talked about financial management in each of the partner countries, with special emphasis on the financial management of this project. University College Nikola Subic Zrinski Zagreb, Croatia Entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial competences are an imperative nowadays, which present the backbone for the development of the modern society. By modern and innovative approach to education the University College of Economics, Entrepreneurship and Management Nikola Subic Zrinski (UCEEM-NSZ) enables students for practical use of expert knowledge, skills and business techniques. Syllabus and the study programme of UCEEM-NSZ provide students with entrepreneurial knowledge and skills which increase the longevity of the business organization in which they work, and contribute to their participation in the social community. In order to increase students competitiveness, the programme combines theory and practice so the all first year students start up their Small and Medium Enterprise. The UCEEM-NSZ contains the Student Business Incubator, a pool of mentors, experts in various areas ranging from entrepreneurship, communication, languages, culture, agronomy, etc. The Student Business Incubator is under auspices of Croatian Ministry of Economy, Labour and Entrepreneurship and Croatian Chamber of Economy.
