Study abroad

One of the most effective policies adopted by European Union in the last years has been the internationalization of higher education. The various Erasmus programmes that have been implemented since the nineties have greatly increased the mobility of European students.
Being a brand-new programme with an internationally oriented educational core strategy, MEF promotes a wide internationalization of their students, and therefore strongly encourages them to spend part of their studies abroad in Erasmus+ Programmes.
Erasmus+ provides opportunities to study, train, gain work experience and skills. Students can go abroad from 3 up to 12 months (including a complementary traineeship period, if planned), and may receive additional grants for studying or training. At the end of their foreign stay, students get full recognition of completed activities in terms of credits for their degree. Student mobility is carried out in the framework of prior "inter-institutional agreements" between the sending and receiving institutions.
Students can also join the traineeship programme (Placement), by going abroad from 2 up to 12 months, starting their traineeship from the first year of study. For a traineeship which is an integral part of the curriculum, the sending institution must give full academic recognition for the period spent abroad. For a traineeship that is not part of the curriculum of the student, the sending institution shall provide recognition at least by recording this period in the Diploma Supplement or, in the case of recent graduates, by providing a traineeship certificate. Traineeship may also be established with private and public companies, educational or research centers other than the hosting institution, especially in the field of finance.
MEF academic staff has strong relations with some important European universities, in particular in Germany, France and Poland but also outside the EU, and is actively involved in research and education networks, so that students' activity abroad (including the development of the final dissertation) can be successfully supervised. Short exchange programs are in place with the HSBC Business School - Peking University Shenzhen (China), Plekhanov Russian University of Economics (Moscow, Russian Federation).
