This virtual Finance & Accounting project takes place in the spring of 2019. The main target of this virtual international cooperation is to allow business students to:
- work in culturally diverse teams, which makes them step out of their comfort zone;
- work on a challenging project, which invites them to think and communicate in another language;
- Students with a main subject Business Management (Finance or Accountancy) broaden their practical knowledge of this other language, whilst developing their intercultural communication skills;
- The Virtual Finance & Accounting Project become acquainted with the concept of start-ups through the updated version of the virtual Str @ tvision business game©.
