P07 Belgrade Metropolitan University

BMU contributes to the educational, cultural, economic and social improvement of Serbia by providing advanced bachelor and graduate studies in the areas of information technology, art and management, as well as continuous professional education. With its four departments/faculties (Faculty of Information Technology, Faculty of Management, Faculty of Digital Arts, Faculty of Sport and Tourism), Metropolitan University provides students with an introduction to the up-to-date technical concepts and practice in several scientific and art areas: information technology, management of IT systems, operations management, marketing, management in sport, graphic design and interactive media design. Metropolitan University was the first one in Serbia to obtain license from the Ministry of Education to deliver distance learning through the Internet, due to the most up-to-date technologies it uses.

Role in the project

BMU leads the DISS workpackage (Dissemination). BMU will develop one new interdisciplinary study programme. It performs the tasks related to analysis of current policies and related practices in EU and Serbia, as well as the labor market research on interdisciplinary computing competence needs. BMU also prepares the teaching methodology, teaching materials and the set of accreditation documents for its new study programme. It engages all of its capacities to smoothly deliver the study programme. An internal quality assessment (the student evaluation) is performed and together with external evaluation results will be used for improving the programme. The academic staff will be retrained with the help of EU partners. Also, BMU has an active role in the activities related to the internal QA and to monitoring of all project results, dissemination, and sustainability.
