Development Plan of the Faculty 2015 – 2019 

  1. Introduction
  • Directions, regulations

This Development Plan has been drawn for the period 2015 – 2019. It is the follow-up of Development Plans of the Faculty of Business Management for 2006 – 2010 and 2011 – 2015.

When composing the Development Plan, we drew on Estonian Higher Education Strategy, the strategy Knowledge Based Estonia 2020, the opinions prevailing at national discussions on business education, the requirements of Higher Education Standard, positions of the Government of the Republic of Estonia on planned developments of the society and the EuroAcademy Development Plan.

Basic principles of the Development Plan of the Faculty at the given stage are:

  • Providing guidelines to instruction and research work, taking into account the needs of the Estonian economy and society.
  • Involvement into the curriculum development of the employers and other social partners, in order to make sure the curricula are in compliance with the skills and competences expected in the labour market.
  • Orientation to the students.
  • Bolstering the quality security.
  • Ongoing internationalisation.
  • Mission and goals of the Faculty

Mission of the Faculty of Business Management is training specialists in business administration of high quality, able to promote the Estonian economy, being competitive on international level, while making use of synergy of various areas of the EuroAcademy, and adding to business education new modern directions. The Faculty of Business Administration follows the motto of the EuroAcademy „Coping in educated Europe“.

Goal is giving to the students modern and standard quality knowledge, enabling successful action in the rapidly changing business environment. That can be ensured by systematic updating of curricula and by making emphasis in the teaching process on formation of decision makers capable for analysis when passing future decisions, as well as by intimate intertwining of our theoretical instruction with practical work – our lecturers have management and entrepreneurial experience in Estonian economy and most of our students work.

At this stage the Faculty sees its role in the society for supporting the direction of the Government of Estonia towards enhancing in the Estonian society the entrepreneurship and for the higher education instruction in entrepreneurship. By reference to that the Faculty has placed emphasis on increasing the share of entrepreneurship in the curricula of the Faculty of Business Management, introduction of the instruction of entrepreneurship in the EuroAcademy non-business specialties and widening the opportunities of teaching digital business.

  • Goals for 2019
  1. Our graduates will be able working in entrepreneurship both domestically as well as internationally.
  2. To have cooperation links with international organisations supporting European entrepreneurship.
  3. The preferred directions of the curriculum development will be:
  • To start teaching complementary speciality „Digital business management“.
  • To implement a new master curriculum
  • To continue the activity for elaboration of complementary specialities supplementing in the business area curricula.
  • To provide support to implement complementary specialities in other curricula.
  1. To carry out in EuroAcademy the open study in the area of business and entrepreneurship.
  1. To increase the number of publications released in international scientific journals (in ETIS classified as 1.1., 1.2., 3.1.). Presently: in the period 2012-2016, 17 members of faculty teaching at master programme have 59 such publications (from 9 authors), i.e. ca 1.3 publications per member of faculty in a year. The goal is to raise that number to 2.
  1. Studies

2.1. Curricula development

Curriculum development is in conformity with the „EuroAcademy Curriculum Statute”.

Development of business-area curricula belongs to competence of Council of the Business Management Faculty. Responsible for development of a curriculum is Supervisor of Curriculum.

Curricula taught by the Faculty belong to the curriculum group „Business and Administration”: professional higher education study curriculum „Business management” (register code 111194 – in Estonian, register code 121937 – in Russian, register code 137098 – in English) and master study curriculum „Economy and Business Administration” (register code 111195 – in Estonian, register code 129457 – in Russian and register code 137117 – in English).

2.1.1. Principles of development of curricula

Directions and principles of development of the business-area curricula are in compliance with the Estonian Higher Education Strategy, Higher Education Standard, needs of the Estonian society and the EuroAcademy General Strategy. Principles of development of the curricula are as follows:

  • Development of a curriculum is systematic.
  • In development of curricula, changes in Estonian entrepreneurial environment and labour market are duly considered
  • In development of curricula, development trends in Estonian and world business education are duly considered. On a regular base, fundamental analysis and comparison of various curricula is carried out, in particular in view of the developments in leading centres of the business education, which are duly considered.
  • In development of curricula, the opportunities opening up thanks to new teaching methods are duly considered.
  • In development of curricula, the employers’ opinions and assessments are duly considered. For that purpose, invited to sit on the Council of Department have been three representatives of organisations, possessing different experience and holding different specialities: head of an international manufacturing company Marko Kokla, President of Estonian Association of Engineers Arvi Hamburg and Counsellor of Fiscal Policy Department of Ministry of Finance Tiiu Reinbusch.
  • In development of curricula, the important feedback sources are the alumni, with whom regular contact is maintained.
  • In development of curricula, feedback from students is duly considered.
  • In development of curricula, suggestions of members of faculty made during development interviews or otherwise are duly considered.
  • To warrant the quality of curricula, every member of faculty is expected to systematically renovate her or his subject programme, in order to provide its novelty and conformity with the dominating views in the respective discipline.
  • Designed as an important device for warranting the quality of curricula has been the creation of the database of profiles of the members of faculty of EuroAcademy to be incorporated in the e-study environment and digi-knowledge base.

 2.1.2. Intra-Academy cooperation

Integration between faculties and joint use of competencies has been a constitutive element of strategy of both EuroAcademy and Business Administration Faculty since their foundation. According to those principles, the strategic place of business management curricula in the EuroAcademy curricula portfolio has been determined as the base curriculum of economy-, enterprise- and management study. In the given stage, the business management curricula e-courses serve as the base for development of the EuroAcademy e-study.

As their part, the EuroAcademy curricula have components of teaching the basics of economy, management and enterprise, belonging to competence of Business Management Faculty.

Business Management Faculty has composed its subject programmes, and teaching is carried out in other departments, under professional higher education study curricula, in the following study subjects: basics of economy, innovation, basics of management, organisation’s behaviour etc.

Several subjects’ programmes and members of faculty of Business Management master curriculum are involved in teaching of master curricula of other specialities of EuroAcademy. Teaching of the subject „Strategic management“ is carried out by Business Administration Department in two variants: business strategies in business management master curriculum and environment strategies in environmental protection master curriculum. The latter is also the object of research jointly done with Environmental Protection Department.

Common parts in several master curricula of various specialities of EuroAcademy are subjects „Modern organisational and management theories“, „Knowledge economy and knowledge systems“, „International business and trade“, „European Union’s Economy“, taught by Business Management Faculty.

On the other hand, duly considered in business management curricula has been the structure of the EuroAcademy, with competencies of various departments therein contained allowing designing the curriculum as both attractive and individual. In pursuance of that principle, one of the optional directions of the business management master curricula is environmentally sustainable enterprise, pursued in cooperation with the EuroAcademy Environmental Protection Faculty.

2.1.3. Improvement of the module structure of curricula

Of major importance in development of curricula of the Faculty in the present stage is formation of the module structure of curricula, enabling, at cooperation with other specialities of EuroAcademy, creating new specialisation directions in curricula – complementary specialities, elective subjects and optional subjects.

Presently, there have been constructed, basing on business management master curriculum, the modules „Economy“, „Management“ and „European enterprise “, which are planned as economy-, management- and enterprise study modules in master curricula of other specialities of EuroAcademy.

Business management master curriculum includes the module „Environmentally sustainable enterprise “, constructed on the basis of master curriculum of the Environmental Protection Faculty.

It is planned to create the EuroAcademy integrated master curriculum, enabling to elect different main and complementary specialities, consolidating competences of different departments and saving resources.

2.1.4. Professional higher education study and master study curricula of business management

Changes planned:

To make programmes more enterprise- and digi-centred.

  • To start teaching complementary speciality „Digital business management“.
