For the very first time, the Izmir University of Economics (IUE) hosted the meeting of the IBSEN- Network and welcomed the members with joy and pleasant 23 degrees (during November!). The Izmir University of Economics joined the Network in 2018 and constitutes three particularities, defining them as a charitable university. They were established by the foundation of the chamber of commerce for education and health in Izmir and have been distinctly internationally orientated ever since. Exemplary for this are the full English-taught course offerings (except Law). Furthermore, the outstanding adaptation of business-related subjects to real economic demands, based on the close cooperation with the chamber of commerce in Izmir.
Main focus of this IBSEN meeting was the exchange on three distinct topics, namely Entrepreneurship (Entrepreneurship and Innovation), Digitalization (Future of Business Education on a digitalized World) and Sustainable Economics (How to generate a more sustainable business environment?). It was decided that a concept for joined ventures regarding the topic of Entrepreneurship shall be pursued by all members and developed together. Therefore, several work packages have been assigned. Additionally, further extensions of existing cooperation have been discussed. Particularly, well-established double-degree programs shall be extended to Master-Degree level. It was of high importance to witness the colleagues of IUE and interact with them personally. The event was perfectly complemented by the organization of exhibition stands of IBSEN Members, where students of IUE had the opportunity of informing themselves about possible semesters abroad. It was due to the presence of the university representatives that the fair was a success for the students, the Members (Sadly, France was not able to participate) and the IBSEN-Network itself.
Students from the partner universities receive a travel allowance of € 500 when attending the full-day event.
