From the academic year 2017/2018 the Curriculum of the first cycle of studies of the study program Economics and Business Management includes a professional practice. Students will attend the professional practice in an enterprise or other institution on the basis of a bilateral agreement between the Faculty of Economics through the Office of Professional Practice and companies or institutions, ie the organizers of professional practice. Professional practice will last 13 working days per semester (13 weeks out of a total of 15 weeks; two weeks are devoted to written colloquia, ie a total of 26 working days during the academic year). In the professional practice, a student will have a mentor from the institution where the professional practice is conducted, and the mentor will keep a diary. Professional practice will hold 2 ECTS credits per semester. For the purpose of monitoring the student practice, each student has a teacher-mentor who reviews the diary of practice and makes a decision on whether the practice has been successfully completed or not.
The agreement on practice is signed between the Faculty of Economics the University of Banja Luka, student and employer, where the learning outcomes that are to be achieved are specified. There should be clear procedures for evaluating learning outcomes and awarding ECTS credits, which will be included in the final paper of students. The roles of the signatories in the process of specifying, achieving and evaluating learning outcomes must be clear. It is an opportunity for learning in working conditions and strengthening professional competences (professional development). The actual tasks performed at the workplace should be complementary to the content studied in the study program. The purpose of the professional practice is:
- learning about specific models and techniques of work,
- improvement of working skills required at the workplace,
- development of new skills that facilitate employment such as team work, technology use
and problem solving,
- the opportunity to acquire skills gradually, from simple to complex,
- assessment in real conditions,
- forming an opinion on the relevance of the content of the program for the workplace,
- providing a documentary basis for the final paper.
After completing the practice, the student prepares a report on the practice, and the
knowledge acquired during the practice, as a rule, but not binding, is described in the
empirical research part of the final paper. ECTS credits are awarded after appropriate
check and assessment and achieved outcomes by the teacher-mentor
