EU funds "SMILE" and "EMFORTM" project submissions | Focus on sustainability, responsibility and management
Good news at MCI: The EU funds two Erasmus+ projects of the Entrepreneurial School® that have been submitted jointly with the European University Ulysseus. The successful project submissions receive a grant of 55,000 euros each and aim to develop Erasmus Mundus Joint Master programs with the partner universities of Ulysseus. These high-level study programs are integrated at master's level and designed and implemented within the international partnerships.
MCI is in charge of the projects "SMILE" and "EMFORTM", which focus on the development of cutting-edge master's programs. While "SMILE" revolves around sustainable management in the field of life sciences, the "EMFORTM" project is creating an innovative master's program for responsible tourism management. The projects will be launched in the next few weeks.
Siegfried Walch, Head of Ulysseus at MCI, explains, "With the establishment of Joint Master programs, we deepen synergies with outstanding partner universities, expand our worldwide networks and increase the employability of our graduates on a global level. It is essential for us to offer students an international education that allows them to move freely between universities in order to promote the internationalization of our location.”
