CEEMAN to develop guidelines for more relevant management education with the help of EU funds

CEEMAN has received approval for “Skilled Business Leaders for Skilled Europe” project funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union (KA2 Strategic Partnerships) for preparation of cross-country report based on the findings of CEEMAN-led research on Management Development Needs in Dynamic Societies, development of guidelines for higher education institutions curricula, teaching materials and tools, and related education and dissemination events.

The project consortium consists of CEEMAN (coordinating institution), RISEBA University of Business, Arts and Technology; Estonian Business School; Vilnius University; Kozminski University; Corvinus University; University of Zagreb and IEDC-Bled School of Management.

The first transnational partner meeting of the project took place in Tallinn, Estonia on 27-28 September 2016, hosted by Estonian Business School. The partners discussed key activities and timeline of the project, EU requirements related to the budget and reporting, as well as next steps.

While the first activities related to project management already started, the work on the first intellectual output “Cross-Country Report” will start in early 2017 and is expected to be completed in October 2017. Following that, the preparation of “Guidelines for HEIs” will continue, to be finalized in spring 2018. Several learning, teaching and training activities are foreseen for academic and administrative staff of partner institutions to help them in preparation of intellectual outputs and better integration of project’s insights in their work. Completion of each intellectual output will be accompanied by respective multiplier (dissemination) events to promote and encourage the use of the outputs among educational institutions and other stakeholders, both on regional and international level.
