Benchmarking Visit AUSTRIA December 2014
Benchmarking Visits in Austria December 2014
CUAS was host of a delegation from the following Universities in Russia: Academy of Labour and Social Relations (Moscow), Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia (St.Petersburg) and Voronezh State University.
The main idea of the Benchmarking Visit in Austria was, not to visit single selected companies, but to get more in discussion with Federations and Associations as representatives of employers and employees as well.
To facilitate/improve the connection between the university and the labour market, CUAS pays special attention to a stable cooperation between real and potential employers, our students and our university itself – mainly by planning and reflecting internships and practical experience of our students.
With our graduates, we have built up a functioning network: We regularly invite to thematic lectures, organize exhibitions of practice to give them a strong feeling of “coming home” to CUAS and strengthen their professional identity. Our benefit: We achieve insight and feedback on the current demands of the workplace.
In addition to the inclusion of designated representatives of the world of work in teaching lessons we even open Bachelor and Master thesis for topics and problems existing in the real world of work. We encourage our students to use the intensive phases and sufficient time especially during writing their Master thesis to develop any solutions to this problems and tasks defined.
During the Benchmarking Visit from 8/12/2014 to 12/12/2014 the collaboration between CUAS and selected cooperation parties had been explored. In addition key characteristics had been discussed and evaluated for their adaptability in Russia.
The following partners were selected for this purpose:
