The project is implemented by the University of Lodz within Scholarship and Training Fund (Development of Polish HEIs). The overall objective of the project is to create a second degree major to complement the learning cycle at the undergraduate level Linguistics for Business.

Programme: Scholarship and Training Fund (Development of Polish Higher Education Institutions)
Duration: 01.01.2015 – 31.05.2016

Project responds to the needs of employers working with the University of Lodz in the Council Business and Employers of the Philology Department looking for highly skilled workers. The business strategies of most of these companies include respect for the environment. Thus, the new field of study includes increasing environmental awareness of future employees. Students will gain knowledge in fields such as the reduction of pollution caused by industry, using renewable energy sources, recycling or organizing so-called green jobs. To achieve this, it is important to maintain constant cooperation with prospective employers. In the preparation phase, ULO will prepare a survey on the needs of businesses, hold consultations and meetings focusing on various elements of the program: the program of study, specialization modules and content of individual courses in which knowledge management, linguistics, IT, CSR communication will be combined with environmental issues.

Study programme will prepare students to work and to manage environmentally conscious business. Also, the organization of classes will correspond to the principle of respect for the environment: part of the courses will be delivered via e-learning platform – students will have direct access to teaching materials without having to copy them. The training program, study plan and textbooks for the language of business communication will include raising public awareness of ecological behavior.

Project will be carried out by the Faculty of Philology with support of International Educational Projects Office.
