In the Markstrat program, an intensive program developed within the Dukenet European Consortium, students take part in a 11-week marketing simulation on-line in English, coordinated by teachers / trainers from participating countries. At the end of the simulation, gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded, depending on the evaluation of the solutions formulated, the notes obtained in two papers and the final presentation in international teams in front of a jury made up of coordinating teachers.
Dukenet is a network that was founded 25 years ago and comprises major universities in Europe. Since 2008, the University of Bucharest has become a partner with equal rights that will send annually, students from the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Foreign Languages and the Faculty of Administration and Business to an intensive marketing strategy probation. In previous years, the distinctions received in the competition opened the doors of multinational companies to employment, making the difference between our graduates and other candidates.
