TUKE Message

Similarly like across the Europe, also in Slovakia there is a requirement of greater integration of praxis in education because graduates often have wide theoretical knowledge but practical skills are minimal. Our faculty as top ranked of economic faculties in Slovakia by educational quality rating is a leader in introducing innovations in education and participation in the project FASTER will surely benefit also our students. FASTER project using the latest ICT provides an innovative tool that allows a wide range of users, not only get a basic understanding of accounting and practical skills, but will also help experienced accountants operating in our market to get information on the accounting legislation in the EU, as well as job opportunities in this area. An important aspect is to create a network of accountants in Slovakia and its integration into the international network of accountants in the EU. Moreover it is for us a very good opportunity to gain new experiences and exchanges with foreign partners and acquire new contacts. Participation in this project increases the credibility of the faculty at home and abroad.
