The Faculty of Management and Economics continuing education forum builds on the long-standing tradition of close collaboration between secondary schools in Carinthia and the Faculty of Management and Economics in the areas of professional dialogue and continuing education.
The event also enables more intensive networking among colleagues working in relevant fields. Current topics in the fields of economics and geography are prepared in a compact format ready to be taught in the classroom and are intended to stimulate conversation about these subjects.
