Developing New Distribution Skills for SMEs and HEI students.

The project "Developing New Distribution Skills for SMEs and HEI students" operates in the period from October 2011 to September 2014 by universities in Steyr (Austria), Gdansk (Poland) and Ancona (Italy) with the support of the European Union and funding for this project exceeds € 250,000.

 


The purpose of the project is to prepare university students and employees of small and medium businesses (dealers) for the requirements of new forms and methods of selling vehicles in the twenty-first century. Based on a survey with dealers of various brands (e.g. Škoda or KTM) in five different European countries (Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, Germany and Italy) problem areas will be identified for suitable education and training of both existing and potential sales staff in the automotive industry.

 

 
 
The exchange of experience between businesses and universities will contribute to better employment possibilities for graduates and higher quality educational programs. At Škoda Auto University, the project will be particularly useful for students of the Business Administration and Sales specialisation, who can expect course innovations and closer cooperation with dealers in the educational process. Is it possible that completely new courses will be created focusing on the issue of sales of cars and motorcycles.

Project "Europa im Wandel"

As a part of German language studies at ŠAVŠ, selected students may attend weekly project seminars "Europa im Wandel", that are held in cooperation with our partner school Fachhochschule Münster. Seminars are always held in November (Münster) and April (Mladá Boleslav). Over the past nine years, more than 80 students of ŠAVŠ have attended these seminars.
 
The seminars are always divided into several topics -  business, education and current affairs (culture, sport). The seminars are supported not only by meeting experts in the given field, but also using presentations prepared by students.

 

Emphasis of assigned tasks or projects are placed particularly on active communication between groups of Czech and German students. For ŠAVŠ students it is both an effective form of deepening communicative, intercultural and professional competencies and their practical application, and irreplaceable form of mutual communication and understanding of foreign cultures.

Green Solutions for Business and Industry

2014 - 2017

Erasmus + KA2

The project Green Solutions for Business and Industry aims at sharing good practices in Green Business educational process with close connection to industrial enterprises. The project will help participants to understand and deal with company values using a balanced approach to economic and environmental efficiency. Organisations have been facing changing conditions for several years. In addition to increasing diversity and dynamics, environmental issues have become increasingly important. Social, political and economic demand for sustainable solutions forces organizations to consider the impact of their activities on environment and to develop sustainable strategies for their product and service offerings, supply chains, manufacturing and transport, among other business related issues.

Czech Language Summer School

In 2011 Škoda Auto University established a partnership with VGNA Moscow (Всероссийская государственная налоговая академия Министерства финансов Российской Федерации) and the first joint project the Czech language summer school was implemented.

 

During a two-week stay by Russian students and pedagogical employees attended lessons in Czech language for beginners and a rich cultural sightseeing programme.  Students of ŠAVŠ also contributed in the organisation of events.

 

For both parties this project presented new knowledge in the field of intercultural communication, a new perspective of the Russian/Czech mentality and a lot of practical knowledge and experience. Russian students are still in contact with Czech lecturers and some have already decided to apply for the master’s degree programme at Škoda Auto University in the next academic year.
