During this practically oriented course students will attain, identify and develop those general professional skills that they will need in the working life and that will enhance their employability. They will learn e.g. how to improve their oral and written presentation skills, how to use different presentation platforms and techniques, how to apply their knowledge-based academic expertise in various working life situations, and how to enhance their group working and intercultural communication skills. They will become familiar with requirements of project management and learn to develop personal strategies for information and knowledge management.

General description

Students are familiarized with various skills required by academic professionals in today’s working life. They will be instructed how to identify and market their knowledge-based personal expertise and skills.
