Course objective is to provide students with the opportunity to meet specific problems in the field of international and financial affairs in the real life situations and to master practical knowledge in the given areas. In addition, the goal is for students to be able to use professional and applied knowledge in business practice in order to contribute to solving practical problems that exist in an economic or public institution in which they do work placement. The aim is for students to develop skills for creative problem solving and decision making, and through team work contribute to solving a practical problem of this institution. By regularly recording the tasks and contributions made in solving the problem, students collect materials (documents, calculations, etc.) that can be the basis for master’s thesis.
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to apply previously acquired theoretical and expert knowledge in solving practical problems within the selected company or institution. In real life conditions, students will develop the ability to spot problems, critically analyse and search for alternative solutions, as well as create and present papers which can be the basis for the master’s thesis.
