In the winter semester of the academic year 2021/2022 we organized the 6th edition of educational project Central Europe Connect - Joint Certificate Program that gives students the opportunity to take part in a short-term foreign exchange at three universities within one semester. The CEC project is a joint project of three economic universities, namely Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), Warsaw School of Economics (SGH) and University of Economics in Bratislava (EUBA). Within this unique certified program, 20 selected students from each university attend lectures and discussions on the topics of economic development of the countries of the Central European region.

The 6th edition of the CEC program was officially launched on October 11, 2021 with the course „Structural Dynamics in Central European Economies“, organized under the professional supervision of EUBA. In the opening speech, students were greeted by Boris Mattoš, the Vice-Rector for International Relations of EUBA, followed by colleagues from partner universities and lecturers.

The opening program continued with integration workshop focused in importance and effectivness of work in groups. During the week of block teaching, students completed a series of lectures and discussions, as well as lecture and virtual excursion to Kia Motors Slovakia. Thanks to the cooperation of the Bratislava Tourist Board students were able to attend also "Virtual tour of Bratislava". Due to measures and online teaching at EUBA, the whole Course Week took place in a distant form. The CEC project then continued in the middle of November with the course "Strategies and Management for Central Europe“, provided by WU, which was organized in a physical form. The CEC project was concluded by course "Marketing resources and consumer behaviour in Central Europe", organized by SGH and it took place in a hybrid mode.

Overall 40 students took part in the CEC project this semester and students had the opportunity to study at partner universities, collaborate on joint projects, listen to interesting lectures provided by representatives of major companies and gain new contacts and experience.

In the end we would like to thank our partners, colleagues and students for their participation and support in the Autumn edition of the Central Europe Connect program.
