Our University has joined an international consortium which, as part of the Erasmus Mundus Join Master’s Degree program, offers master level studies at four European universities. Graduates of the "Transition, Innovation and Sustainability Environment" (TISE) course will receive a diploma of completion of studies conducted jointly by four universities: Donau-Universität Krems (Austria), Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal), University College Dublin (Ireland) and the University of Economics in Poznań . The study program is interdisciplinary and innovative. It touches on current and important issues related to new, digital technologies, sustainable development and transformation of the economy under conditions of high dynamics of socio-economic changes. It prepares students to create modern strategies, create innovations, and implement specific tools and processes of change management, as well as quickly and accurately identify opportunities and threats related to the transformation of the organization. It equips students with managerial competences and knowledge, allowing for management through competence leadership, effective problem solving, and flexible responses to change, as well as understanding and analysis of the impact of modern technologies on society, enterprises and institutions.

Candidates from all over the world are accepted for studies, giving the program a multicultural dimension. The program is fully financed by EU funds for candidates who successfully pass the recruitment process. People who qualify for studies will receive a scholarship to cover tuition fees, library and laboratory use, full insurance, travel and accommodation costs, and other living expenses. Recruitment procedures are carried out by the leader of the Consortium - Krems University - and application is possible at https://www.tise-master.eu, until February 28, 2021. It will also be possible to apply for paid studies in this field.

The TISE coordinator at PUEB is Dr. Maciej Pietrzykowski from the Department of International Competitiveness. More information about the project can be found at: https://bit.ly/3hZD7dP
