Participants will extend their knowledge in seminars, discussions and work in international teams. The interaction between all participants helps to strengthen international networks and contacts.
The intensive course Global Management in the Automotive Industry (GMAI) represents further expansion of partner schools’ student and teacher mobility, enables participants to understand cultural differences, develop their language skills and in particular acquire new expertise focused mainly in the automotive industry.
The GMAI project is planned for three years. Each year has a different theme and combines the fields of economics and management with technical disciplines. The programme always includes a theoretical base connected with practical tasks, case studies and project work. An integral part is training soft skills in communication, negotiation, presentation, etc.
In addition to university teachers professionals and foreign guests also participate in the lessons and projects. The programme also includes excursions to companies and to various workplaces associated with the automotive industry.
The first year - Building an Internationally Competitive Car Company took place between 1st and 17 September 2011. 25 students, 4 teachers and 5 partner universities participated in the course. Experts from ŠKODA AUTO a.s. also supported the course.
The second year took place between 2nd and 19th September 2012 and was focused on Sales and Marketing in the Automotive Industry. 48 students, 5 teachers and 9 partner universities participated in the course, which was a significant increase. Again, experts supported the programme as well, coming from not only ŠKODA AUTO a.s., in the Czech Republic but overseas.
The last year is scheduled for September 2013 and will be aimed at Production and Logistics in the Automotive Industry.
