International cooperation is an important factor in the development of the Faculty of Economic Sciences and its aim is to improve the quality of research and education. The cooperation is carried out based on formal (bilateral agreements and international programs) and informal (individual contacts of employees) forms of relationships.
The Faculty of Economic Sciences actively cooperates with foreign universities in Europe and beyond its borders. The cooperation is based on agreements on cooperation in scientific research and exchange of staff and students.
We cooperate with many universities within the Erasmus+ program. The list of agreements in force is subject to constant modifications as new ones are negotiated and signed and, at the same time, expiring agreements are extended. The list of current agreements can be accessed here: http://bwm.uwm.edu.pl
We would like to express our interest in establishing new partnerships with universities and research institutes as well as individual researchers. Please, do not hesitate to contact one of the members of our International Cooperation Team if you or your organization are willing to discuss any forms of collaboration.
Open Lectures in English
During the 2022/2023 academic year three lecturers from abroad visited the Faculty of Economic Sciences to deliver open lectures in English as part of the project “University of Great Possibilities – a program to improve the quality of education process management and teaching quality POWR.03.05.00-00-Z201/18” co-financed by the European Union under the European Social Fund. All lecturers were cordially welcomed by the Dean of the Faculty of Economic Sciences – prof. Mariola Grzybowska-Brzezińska and Dr Dominika Kuberska.
The first visit took place in November 2022. During a two-day event Dr Judith Wiemann from the Ruhr University in Bochum (Germany) shared different “Perspectives on Economic Geography” with our students. The discussed topics included challenging selected myths about globalization and – as a result – defining globalization, an outlook on the automotive industry with a particular emphasis on transferring skills across space, and entrepreneurship from a spatial perspective.
The second open lecture on “Health Economics” was conducted in April 2023 by Dr Anne Busch from the Fachhochschule Wiener Neustadt (Austria). Dr Busch began her visit to Kortowo with a walk around our campus and - as she emphasized - she was very impressed by its unique aura. The participants of the first part of the lecture discussed the organization, design and financing of healthcare systems, the role of startups in the healthcare system and the benefits of clusters. The second part of the lecture was devoted to new technologies and innovations as a response to current challenges in the healthcare system.
The third and last open lecture on “Collaborative Spaces” was delivered in May 2023 by Dr Lukas Danko from Tomas Bata University in Zlín (Czech Republic). The students which attended the lectures became acquainted with the issues of contemporary working conditions, the taxonomy of collaborative spaces and the trajectory of their development, as well as issues related to the relationship between collaborative spaces and knowledge sharing processes.
