Professional Experience

The Aims and Benefits of Gaining Professional Experience

The aim of setting up opportunities for our students to acquire professional experience is to enable them to use the theoretical knowledge gained during their studies in practice. In this way, they can find out how the skills they have acquired can be applied in the real workplace. Professional experience helps students choose the kind of professional specialization which will contribute to their employability on the labour market. Gaining professional experience is an integral part of the study program from start to finish, providing a link between theory and practice. The system of professional experience contributes to MVSO´s efforts to strengthen and enhance the employability of graduates and improve the economic status of the region.

Selecting a Professional Experience Provider; Making Preparations

The process starts with students actively showing interest by preparing themselves to enter the working environment, Students, taking into account their fields of studies, specializations, interests and abilities,and also considering the situation at the workplace and the requirements thereof, choose a particular professional experience provider. Making use of the offers of the enterprise partners of the university is one of the options.

A warm-up week is a part of professional experience. During this week, the students are being systematically prepared for the activities at the workplace. They also get acquainted with selected topics in management and economics, enterprise documentation and communication, marketing and grant projects.

Students plan the organisation and timetable of their practical on-site training individually, taking into account their address, field of study, future professional career, interests and abilities and also considering the conditions and requirements of the training organization or enterprise.The student chooses the date of professional experience individually in agreement with the enterprise according to his/her needs, interests, abilities and potential.

Practical Training in Progress

Once in the workplace, they get involved in it and become acquainted with different types of work situations, while adapting to the requirements of a specific profession. While endeavoring to gain professional experience, students gradually acquaint themselves with the activities and the roles of the particular workplace, utilizing the knowledge gained in related subjects during their studies. Students apply their theoretical knowledge and acquire practical skills.

Applying Lessons Learned in Practice to Schoolwork

They then apply the knowledge and skills gained through different work activities to their studies, demonstrating and developing their skills, abilities and knowledge applicable in a working environment, including communicating and solving problems using information technology. Professional experience may also serve as the basis for students’ term papers or theses.
