Entrepreneurship provides dynamism and innovation of state economic system. During study at European universities, students developed entrepreneurial skills, business skills and entrepreneurial behavior. Thus, the main emphasis is put on practical training. As a part of the workshop a business game is held, in frames of which CSU students together with students from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and China are able to organize their own enterprise and to master such skills as business management and teamwork.
The School was led by 2 business-trainers- Joop Vinke,
Professor of Arnhem Business School (the Netherlands), who guided CSU Summer
Schools for the fourth time, and Loredana Orhei (Romania), President of Leaders
TM Company. “Together with Loredana we developed a new program which is, however,
related to the previous ones in basics, e.g. HRQM, and is based on experience we
had over the last five years. Now the program includes elements of training and
education of entrepreneurial behavior - the most high-demanded areas in Western
and Eastern Europe. We put emphasize on students’ attitude to what they are
learning, not on knowledge itself,” - said Prof. Vinke.
The centerpiece of Summer School was taken by the
Business simulation game, during which 23 teams, consisting of 3-4 students each
have been running up big company’s HR department and were responsible for making
decisions on budget planning and distribution, hiring and dismissal of people in
crises and risk situations. The main aim of the game is to apply participants’ knowledge,
skills and which is of most importance attitude to a business environment.
During nine days 10 international and 75 CSU students
have lived a 2-year life of a company and enjoyed various trainings and
team-work activities allowing them not only to develop their intercultural
competences and English language skills, but also providing an opportunity to compile
personal and professional profiles.
“Toward the end of the Summer School we see
transformation in the behavior of students. The most significant is that
students can trace changes in their reflections throughout the program themselves,”
- commented Loredana Orhei.
It is also worth noting that some CSU graduate students
who took part in Summer Schools 2011-2012 have already shown entrepreneurial
behavior and successfully set up their own businesses.
