international cooperation

We are increasing the scope of project and
international cooperation
Successful performance in today’s business sphere is mainly based on a continuous process of learning, training, and adapting to always changing, increasingly interconnected global environment. We are enlarging our international cooperation in light of these processes.

Newly planned activities are targeting our and foreign students, staff, enterprises, higher education institutions, institutes, organisations, etc., and are following our long term aims:

  • Continuous improvement of the level of knowledge, competences and skills, gained through pedagogic, academic and research processes in an international environment, and therefore development of modernisation, digitalisation and internationalisation of the learning and teaching processes as well as dissemination of good practices;
  • Strengthening the efficient transition of competences, skills and knowledge in the business environment;
  • Enlarging the network and cooperation of HEI, business enterprises, and other entrepreneurship institutions in Erasmus+ Programme and partner countries with the emphasis on the cooperation in the Western Balkans.

International office is an inner unit of the VŠR College for organisational, contextual and administrative preparation, implementation and evaluation of international cooperation. It is also responsible for communication with our partners and participants in mobility.      

Moreover, it provides incoming and outgoing students and staff with needed preparation and support for their mobility (preparation of the agreements, organisation of language support and mentorship, accommodation and insurance assistance, organisation of arrival week for long-term incomers, etc.).

ERASMUS +

Erasmus+ is the EU Programme that supports education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion provides study, traineeship and other exchange opportunities for over 4 million Europeans. The aim of Erasmus+ Programme is to contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion, as well as the aims of ET2020, the EU strategic framework for education and training.

Erasmus+ also aims at promoting sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education, and contributes to the achievement of the EU Youth Strategy objectives.

Specific issues tackled by the programme include reducing unemployment, especially among young people; promoting adult learning, especially for new skills and skills required by the labour market; encouraging young people to take part in European democracy; supporting innovation, cooperation and reform; reducing early school leaving and promoting cooperation and mobility with the EU partner countries.

The VŠR College of Accounting and Finance (Ljubljana, Slovenia) holds an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) for the whole Erasmus+ programme period 2014-2020.

Academic and other staff from partner institutions, enterprises, and others are welcome to carry out an incoming mobility at the VŠR College within the frame of Erasmus+ Programme. We kindly invite all interested to consult our English webpage for better insight into our academic scope and other activities.If you are interested in mobility at VŠR College, please contact our international office to consider the realization options and establish Erasmus+ partnership with your sending institution (if needed).

We also enable teaching and training mobilities for our academic and nonacademic staff at partner higher education institutions, enterprises, and others. Moreover, we invite our staff, who are interested in mobility at particular higher education institution, enterprise, or other, to contact our international office to establish Erasmus+ partnership with the chosen receiving institution (if needed).

Erasmus+ Programme offers four types of mobilities for academic and nonacademic staff:          

  • Teaching Mobility for academic staff (in the education sector or in the business world) which must cover at least 8 actual teaching hours per week. Minimum duration of mobility is 2 days and maximum 2 months (without traveling days) between two Programme countries and a minimum of 5 days and maximum 2 months (excluding travelling time) between a Programme country and a Partner country. The shortest mobility must include teaching in two consecutive days; whereas teaching hours in longer (extending over one week) mobilities are proportionally reduced (in case of incomplete weeks).   
  • Training Mobility is available to staff working in education, both in teaching and non-teaching capacities. Training periods can consist of job shadowing, observation periods, professional development courses or specific competence-building events. A training period between two Programme countries must last a minimum of 2 days and maximum 2 months (excluding travelling time). A training period between a Programme country and a Partner country must last a minimum of 5 days and maximum 2 months (excluding travelling time).
  • Combined Mobility is a combination of teaching and training mobility.
  • Blended Moblity is a combination of a short term physical mobility with a virtual component. The virtual component must facilitate a collaborative online learning exchange and teamwork.

International staff cooperation aims at increasing the quality of study programmes and internationalisation as well as other beneficial effects on VŠR College (i. e. its staffs and students), our institute, partners and on international cooperation. It also attempts to strenghten connections and transfers of knowledge between higher education institutions and enterprises.

Studying abroad is a central part of Erasmus+ Programme and has been shown to have a positive effect on graduates’ job prospects. It is also an excellent opportunity to improve language skills, gain self-confidence and independence as well as to immerse oneself in a new culture.

INCOMING STUDENTS

We welcome students from our partner higher education institutions, enterprises, and others.

Within the frame of Erasmus+ cooperation, incoming students are  exempted from fees for tuition, registration, exams and access to library facilities. As an incoming student, you are integrated in our study process and have language support, a mentor and a peer support for better inclusion in the environment. You are also given all electronic resources for maximized learning outcomes of your mobility.We invite interested foreign students to look at our English website to familiarize themselves with our course catalogue (study programmes). If you are interested in mobility at VŠR College, please contact our international office, and we will consider establishing cooperation with your sending higher education institution, school or enterprise, or will find another solution.

Time frame of Erasmus+ Mobility for students is between 3 and12 months, with the possibility of blended mobility (real and virtual mobility). Interested students for academic year 2020/21 can apply for the summer semester only until 15 December 2020.

OUTGOING STUDENTS 

We enable our students the mobility experience at our partner higher education institutions, enterprises, and elsewhere.

Within the frame of Erasmus+ cooperation, outgoing students are  exempted from fees for tuition, registration, exams, access to library facilities, etc. at receiving institution, and receive financial support for mobility. We support them during their search and choice of a study or traineeship programme, in their preparations of mobility plans as well as in other organisational and language aspects.

Moreover, we invite our students, who are interested in study or traineeship mobility at a particular higher education institution or enterprise abroad to contact us with their preference. If  the chosen institution lies within the frame of our internationalisation strategy and is compatible with our study programme, we will establish the needed cooperation for the realization of the mobility.

Time frame of Erasmus+ Mobility for students is between 3 and12 months, with the possibility of blended mobility (real and virtual mobility). 

RECOGNITION PROCESS              

Recognition of mobility in terms of counting toward the final degree is one of the most crucial factors of any student mobility. Appropriate ECTS transfer for the study or traineeship achievements during mobility will be communicated prior to any mobility and defined in agreements (inter-institutional agreements; learning and other tripartite agreements). All participants of mobility will be well informed about the requirements for full recognition of their mobility. They will be included in communication and will need to sign learning or other tripartite agreement, in which the methodology of ECTS transfer will be particularly defined. This agreement will be signed by VŠR College, receiving (or sending) partner higher education institution or enterprise, and Erasmus+ student.

The receiving higher education institution or enterprise must issue the Transcript of Records or other appropriate document after the mobility and also keep records in their archives. Following the Transcript of Records, sending higher education institution (i. e. student’s sending institution) transfers the ECTS in accordance with the agreements and counts them toward the final degree of the student participating in Erasmus+ Mobility. Sending higher education institution issues a Supplement to the graduate degree, if he or she participated in the international mobility during his or her studies.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT    

Incoming and outgoing students can receive an Erasmus+ grant as a contribution to their travel and subsistence costs. Grants vary according to differences in living costs between the country of sending institution and the destination country, the number of students applying for a grant, the distance between countries and the availability of other grants.

 

VŠR College aims at further development of long-term international partnerships, especially in the form of strategic cooperation, knowledge alliances, and joint Master degrees. We strive to establish common objectives (with all partners), increase internationalisation and quality of academic work, improve the transition of knowledge to business, as well as to enforce inter-sector connections. We believe that these aspects of cooperation also expand the employment possibilities for our (and partners’) students or staff members as well as efficiency and future development of enterprises.

We would like to establish partnerships in all Erasmus+ Programme and Partner countries, when the joint or compatible objectives are met. We are especially interested in building a network of partners in Western Balkans.

Higher education institutions, organisations, enterprises and other interested bodies are kindly invited to contact our international office for possible cooperation.

Following its aims, VŠR – College of Accounting and Finance is answering growing global need to increase the number of highly skilled professionals in management accounting and business finances, who would be able to perform within different bodies (enterprises, corporations, other institutions) in multidiscipline and cross sector environments. It is important for us to provide efficient global level of quality. Doing this, we are answering the need for global crisis prevention and response. We perform HE first cycle programme Accounting (accounting and finance), and certified programme Certified Management Accountant (CMA). In 2014/2015, we have started HE second cycle (master) programme Forensic Investigation in Accounting and Finance. We are enabling the acquisition of various British licenced IAB certificates and diplomas on bookkeeping. We are cofounders of IPR – Institute for management accounting, and we have networks of enterprises, also within JPA network. It is within our modernisation strategy to constantly response to global economic and social development, and within our international strategy to establish ever stronger international cooperation.

Our internationalisation and modernisation strategy resulted in joining Erasmus+ programme. We are developing international connections; strengthening already established and forming new partnerships in EU programme countries as well as in other partner countries, with special interest in West Balkan area. We believe in multiple reasons for forming international network of higher education institutions, enterprises, public organisations, research institutes and other bodies with compactible interest scopes. This network would economically and socially further connect West Balkan through educating, training, learning, researching and employability reducing. We also aim to strengthen the cooperation within our interest scope between West Balkan and other European countries.

Particular objective for international cooperation is flow of knowledge, skills, teaching methods, entrepreneurship and good practice, implemented as mobility exchanges (also blended mobility). For students, we offer credit/traineeship mobility. Traineeship mobility will be carried within our enterprise network. We have established strategies for valid credit transfer (ECTS), recognition (Diploma Supplement and/or other Europass Documents), and exploitation of results.

For staff, we offer quality exchange of academic and research staff as teaching/training mobility. We are aiming to increase quality of education about accounting, finance, management, and connected fields within HEI internationally, and efficient transfer of knowledge in business sphere. We will enable space and sources for exploitation of good practice and mobility results (open discussion, academic publications, research facilities, etc.).

We are furthermore foreseeing complex and likely prolonged objective of developing joint master degrees, and aim to establish efficient partnerships in programme as well as partner countries of Erasmus+ programme.

In implementation of these activities, we will ensure at least minimum level of quality and support requirements, stated in Erasmus+. We have developed language strategy, flexible for new partners of different linguistic backgrounds. Our courses are taught in Slovenian, though we have particular capacities for Croatian, Serbian, English, and German language. We aim for efficient inclusion of incoming students/staff, and will therefore prefer language solutions, which will fit this aim at its best. We are charging no fees of tuition, registry, examination or library accessibility to incoming Erasmus+ participants. We offer various (intercultural, study, logistic, legal) support for incoming and outgoing participants.

COOPERATION PROJECTS

After forming stable partnerships with compactible policy aims, and enforcing capacities for such projects, we are interested to join cooperation projects and strategic partnerships and knowledge alliances aiming towards modernisation of higher education and towards constant adjustments to global economic, business, management and entrepreneurship needs; firstly as partners and as coordinators in later state of our international Erasmus+ development.

EXPECTED IMPACT – POLICY OBJECTIVES

– With the possibilities of blended mobilities as well as through other especially ICT facilities and communication methods, we aim: to provide easier and more friendly environment for our students, who are work or family oriented and otherwise couldn’t benefit from internationalisation and modernisation measurements of our HEI; in cooperation with our partners’ HEI from geographically or economically disadvantaged areas, to increase the number of higher education student and graduates in global scale; giving academic staff the facilities for research of global development and needs in accounting/finance scope, to make beneficial impact on improving the quality of HEI in mentioned fields.

– With building the partners’ network of HEI/enterprises and other institutions in the scope of accounting/finance in West Balcan, we can better design entrepreneurship outcomes of HEI curriculum in international context. This is particularly applicable by staff mobility and by engaging small/medium sized enterprises.

– With joining Erasmus+, we not only particularly benefit through enabling cross borders mobility by receiving and sending students in partner as well as programme countries, but also contribute to EHEA’s aim for doubling student mobility until 2020.

– Linking HEI/enterprises/research bodies is already one of our main objectives, and we will be able to further disseminate this model in international context. We believe this model is hugely impacting better employability and economic growth.

– Participation in Erasmus+ will enable better results in development of international and modernisation strategy from funding point of view.

PO KREATIVNI POTI DO ZNANJA

Program »Odprt, odziven in kakovosten sistem visokega šolstva ‒ Projektno delo z gospodarstvom in negospodarstvom v lokalnem in regionalnem okolju ‒ Po kreativni poti do znanja 2016–2020« omogoča povezovanje visokošolskih zavodov s trgom dela in tako daje možnost študentom pridobitev praktičnih izkušenj.

V okviru sofinanciranih projektov študenti proučujejo kreativne in inovativne rešitve za izzive gospodarskega in družbenega okolja. Projekti se izvajajo v skupinah 6‒8 študentov pod mentorstvom pedagoškega in delovnega mentorja, dodatno pa se projektu lahko pridruži organizacija z gospodarskega ali družbenega področja. Projekti trajajo 3‒6 mesecev.

Skupaj s programom se uveljavlja tudi nova dejavnost, pri kateri gre za spodbujanje medsebojne izmenjave znanj, izkušenj in dobrih praks visokošolskih učiteljev in strokovnjakov iz gospodarstva ter drugih področij. Cilj tovrstne dejavnosti je prenos strokovnega in akademskega znanja, kar bo spodbudilo visokošolske zavode k posodabljanju študijskih programov ter uvajanju inovativnih pristopov k učenju.

Visoka šola za računovodstvo in finance v projektih PKP prepoznava izjemno priložnost, da študentom omogoči uvid v strokovno, raziskovalno in inovativno delo kot odgovor na realne potrebe stroke. Kot šola, ki jo odlikuje dobra povezanost s stroko in prizadevanje k čim boljši pripravi študentov na potrebe delovnega okolja, stremimo k priložnostim, ki nam tak razvoj omogočajo. Projekti PKP ob tem spodbujajo tudi medsektorsko, multidisciplinarno sodelovanje, ki ga prepoznavamo kot enega temeljnih stebrov današnjega in jutrišnjega gospodarskega okolja.

Oblikovanje orodja za sestavo konsolidiranih računovodskih izkazov po Mednarodnih standardih računovodskega poročanja

V šolskem letu 2016/2017 je Visoka šola za računovodstvo in finance izvedla projekt »Oblikovanjeorodja za sestavo konsolidiranih računovodskih izkazov po Mednarodnih standardihračunovodskega poročanja (MSRP)«, v katerem je skupina šestih študentov VŠR s pomočjo dveh pedagoških mentorjev in ene delovne mentorice za gospodarsko družbo TAB TovarnaAkumulatorskih Baterij d.d. (Mežica) razvila orodje za poročanje in sestavo konsolidiranih računovodskih izkazov po MSRP.

Potreba za razvoj takega orodja je nastala z dopolnitvijo Zakona o gospodarskih družbah (ZGD) avgusta 2015, ki od leta 2016 vse velike skupine pravnih oseb zavezuje k poročanju po MSRP, ki se razlikujejo od Slovenskih računovodskih standardov. Gospodarska družba TAB d.d. je morala v konsolidirano poročilo vključiti še svoje mednarodne odvisne družbe iz Italije, Španije, Poljske in Makedonije. Jedro projekta je tako predstavljal razvoj orodja, ki bo TAB d.d. z ozirom na njegove mednarodne hčerinske družbe omogočilo potrebno poenotenje na MSRP in učinkovito vsakoletnoporočanje.

Razvoj orodja je vključeval več faz (od priprave praznih poročevalskih paketov do prevajanja orodja, zbiranje testnih izpolnjenih paketov družb, tehnične in vsebinske izboljšave itd.), ki so jih študenti ob zaključku projekta tudi podrobneje javno predstavili in opisali v modulu. Predstavitveni modul je dostopen na naslednji povezavi. Na projektu so sodelovali naslednji študenti in študentke VŠR:Andreja Židan, Bogdan Živić, Nik Murn, Nina Demšar, Petra Kukulj in Tjaša Nakić ter Sabina Zalar.

V okviru projekta sta potekali tudi dve predavanji pedagoške in delovne mentorice, preko katerih so bila pridobljena znanja prenesena tako v sodelujoče podjetje kot med študente VŠR. Kot pedagoška mentorja sta na projektu sodelovala mag. Darinka Kamenšek in mag. Dejan Petkovič, kot delovna mentorica pa Blanka Štumberger.

Prispevek o projektu in njegovih rezultatih pa bo do konca leta 2017 objavljen tudi v reviji Poslovodno računovodstvo.

Projekt sta finančno podprla Republika Slovenija in Evropska unija (Evropski socialni sklad) v okviru javnega razpisa za sofinanciranje projektov Projektno delo z gospodarstvom in negospodarstvom v lokalnem in regionalnem okolju – po kreativni poti do znanja 2016/2017.

 

Model za načrtovanje in spremljanje učinkovitosti investicij v drago medicinsko opremo (MDMO)

V okviru projekta PKP 2017/2018 smo izdelali model za načrtovanje in spremljanje učinkovitosti investicij v drago medicinsko opremo. Model je v prvi vrsti namenjen odločevalcem o investiciji v drago medicinsko opremo v javnih in zasebnih zdravstvenih ustanovah. Kot alternativa nakupu drage opreme se na trgu pojavlja možnost odločitve za poslovni najem. Poslovni najem je praviloma enostavnejša izbira, saj v pogodbi pogosto že vključuje stroške vzdrževanja. Za nakup je po drugi strani treba zbrati ustrezno količino denarnih sredstev, vendar je pri zadostni življenjski dobi in učinkovitosti uporabe pogosto bolj ekonomična izbira.

Z modelom, ki je trenutno oblikovan za CT naprave, a ga je moč prilagoditi tudi za drugo opremo, je mogoče presojati med nakupom in najemom ter določiti potrebno življenjsko dobo in učinkovitost opreme za upravičenje investicije. Model je bil razvit na primeru CT naprav Splošne bolnišnice Izola.
