The Polish Open University undoubtedly has a new excellent learning methodology that will be able to successfully solve the challenges that students will face in an ever-more competitive and fast transiting world.
The university based on their many years of research and practice in their respective fields of education and econometrics, the founders of POU understood the limitations of teaching business through books and passive, albeit interesting lectures. The debates regarding how to enhance the quality of business education has been generating lot of controversy for over fifty years. The criticism often leveled at business schools is that studies are often too theorectical in nature and that schools fail to impart the practical skills necessary for future practitioners. With the showcasing of new business trends evolving at an ever faster pace and qualitative and quantitative knowledge expected to double every seventy-three days by 2012, the call for a new model of business education can no longer be ignored.
In order to address this need for change, Polish Open University (POU) was conceived as a higher institution of learning dedicated to a student-centric approach to teaching and which mostly encourages/supports innovations. The core of the instruction is conducted in workshop programs, where the students are challenged to collectively work in groups, as well as individually. These will help to resolve the current business problems.
Relevant knowledge and theory are very important elements of instructions, but students are encouraged to use their knowledge, talents and creativity to challenge conventional wisdom in order to better demonstrate their command of the subject matter.
Competency, interpersonal skills, the ability to master change and being able to judge the potential for new ideas are central to POU’s instruction. Business like other subject matters today requires a committment to life-long learning and a willingness to take greater responsibility for personal development. Polish Open University empowers its students to meet today’s challenges and better prepares them for the opportunities of tomorrow.
