For business partners
The primary task of the Practicality Centre is to make the study programmes as attractive as possible from a business perspective. The main principle of these activities is the transfer of knowledge, ideas and experience. We invite entrepreneurs, experienced practitioners and trainers to work with us.
Benefits for partners
Cooperation with one of the oldest non-public universities with a vocational profile in Wielkopolska is not only prestigious, but also an opportunity to build a brand image in the business and academic environment and among students and graduates.
Cooperation with Collegium Da Vinci is an opportunity to collaborate with university staff, students, graduates and other companies. This cooperation will enable not only the transfer of knowledge, but also ideas and experience.
Thanks to the implementation of activities together with the CDV, each employer has the opportunity to establish permanent business relations with both the academic community, students – i.e. potential employees and other partners of the university through an extensive system of projects and networking meetings.
Forms of cooperation
Course partner – each of the fields of study offered by CDV has a partner in the form of a company that closely cooperates with didacticians, consults on changes in study programmes, organises workshops, internships and placements for students, and gets involved in the development of the fields of study, i.e. in the training of its future employees.
Workshops – experts and specialists from partner companies are invited to conduct workshops for students and graduates, giving them the opportunity to have a real impact on the development of the competences of their future employees.
Classes and mentoring – practitioners from companies are invited to teach as trainers and lecturers and to deliver monitoring programmes. As mentors and lecturers, they share their experience with students and have the opportunity to take part in projects to transfer knowledge, ideas and experiences.
Case study and thesis projects – each faculty partner has the opportunity to provide a case study related to their company, which will be solved by students as part of their course work or thesis under the supervision of an experienced academic teacher, in cooperation with a company representative.
Our values are RESPONSIBILITY, CONFIDENCE, RESPECT.
Internships and apprenticeships – companies offering an internship or apprenticeship programme can verify the skills, knowledge and competencies of our students while performing real tasks in their companies, while students have the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have gained in practice and gain valuable work experience.
Employers’ Council – representatives of the most active partners are invited to sit on the Employers’ Council, which plays an advisory role in the process of designing and modifying courses of study for the needs of the dynamically developing labour market.
Dual degree programmes – this is a project in which part of the course is taught at the university and part of the course is taught through projects at the employer’s premises. This makes the studies even more practical.
Networking – course partners are invited to thematic networking meetings during which they have the opportunity to establish cooperation with students, graduates, university teachers and other companies.
