BSC Forum Launches the first accredited course at the University of Economics
“Skills for success - from University to Workplace” is the title of the first accredited course initiated by the Business Service Center Forum and supported by the American Chamber of Commerce, now open for students of the Faculty of Business Management at the University of Economics in Bratislava. The course runs on a weekly basis during the winter semester and is led by professional trainers from the companies that are members of the BSC Forum, with the aim to improve the competitiveness of Slovak students on the labor market. In the future, BSCF wants to extend the course to other faculties and universities as well.
Soft skills are very often underrated in the Slovak education system. Students who after graduation start to work, tend to have good expertise in their field, but they lack a full set of soft skills that are also necessary for the successful functioning in business. This is the scenario all companies that are members of the BSC Forum encounter, and therefore decided to invest in creating a new accredited subject that would help students be more successful in their career. Students thus have the chance to gain a whole set of skills that are not taught elsewhere.
