The Field Trip Project 2010 NGOs
This year’s EMBA field trip cooperates with not-for-profit organizations (NGOs) from Greece, Albania, FYROM and Romania with the objective of assisting them in their work and so enhancing their social contribution. The students thus have the opportunity to explore at first hand management practices in different Southeast European countries, while making a direct contribution to society.
The aim of the Field Trip is to integrate theory with practical application within diverse political, cultural, economic and business environments. This past year, the following NGOs were assisted by the Executive MBA 2010 students:
At the presentation of the students’ Field Trip projects, the representatives from ECOREC, Ms Katia Makrinika, expressed her satisfaction with the cooperation with the EMBA students and pointed out the importance of their help in some managerial issues, where the NGO administrators did not have the specific knowledge and experience.
From the Executive MBA students’ perspective, Roden Pajaj said that the Field Trip project was valuable because it puts into practice many different fields of knowledge such as marketing, negotiation skills, business strategy and project management. “It is a real assessment of all the knowledge gained during the previous months”.
The presentation took place at the IHU on 9 September 2011
