Cooperation with 2BCognitus began with a series of lectures held in 2017 at selected faculties during which the students learnt about the latest trends in the field of management. Subsequently, the students had the opportunity to sign up for a series of four two-hour late afternoon workshops. Based on letters of motivation from individual candidates, a total of 50 male and female students of the Technical University of Košice were selected.
Subsequent workshops for ten-membered groups were held gradually from May to November 2017. Through theory and practice the participants of free workshops came to know the essence of project management - from project planning (benefits, conditions, limitations, risks and risk management, costs, division of work and outputs) through implementation (change management and project follow-up) to project completion (lessons, submission of outputs). During the last workshop, the students were given a final test.
On November 20, 2017, a final meeting, where students were handed out certificates, was held with the participation of the Vice-Rector for Education at the Technical University of Kosice prof. Lumnitzer and representatives of 2BCognitus.
Workshops Manage It! for the students of our university continue in the summer term of the academic year 2017/2018 for selected students.
