ŠKODA AUTO University has successfully undergone the accreditation process of the European Logistics Association and has obtained accreditation for the Bachelor of Business Economics and Management of Vehicle Logistics and Quality and a follow-up Master of Business Administration and Operations Management. Accreditation will help students get an international logistic certificate cEJLog.
After successfully gaining the accreditation of the European Logistics Association, students and graduates of the Bachelor of Business Economics and Operations Management, Logistics and Quality and a follow-up Master of Business Economics and Operations Management can benefit from further benefits. The most successful graduates of these logistics specializations are awarded the cEJLog candidate certificate without certification exams.
An important prerequisite for issuing a certificate is the successful accreditation of the European Logistics Association, which ŠKODA AUTO University received as the first college in the Czech Republic this year. Currently, the Czech Republic has more than 60 certified logistics, the total number of holders of ECBL certificates from around the world exceeds 7200. Students of ŠKODA AUTO University may soon expand their ranges.
“We are very pleased that ŠKODA AUTO University has proved to be the first to meet the demanding accreditation conditions and I believe that the reputation of this high school will certainly lead to the success of ŠKODA AUTO a.s., which recently won the title of the best European logistics project in 2014,” says President of the National Certification Council and Vice President of the Czech Logistics Association Ing. Kamil Slavík to the accreditation.
Prof. Ing. Radim Lenort, Ph.D., a guarantor of the mentioned fields and head of the Department of Logistics, Quality and Automotive Technology, adds: “The accreditation of the European Logistics Association has confirmed the high level of logistics education that we offer to students. It is not only about quality and attractive teaching led by experienced university and practice managers, but also about the training of students in the modern Lean center of ŠKODA AUTO a.s. and gaining practical experience from excursions, practices, and finishing work on the top logistics workplaces of the entire Volkswagen Group and its partners.”
In addition to the European Logistics Association certificate, ŠKODA AUTO University students studying logistics specialization that fulfills defined prerequisites can apply for Logistics Management I and II certificates issued under the auspices of the Czech Logistics Association.
“We believe that these certificates, based on a high level of logistical skills, will open our graduates in gaining their logistics jobs not only in the Czech Republic, but especially in Europe,” says prof. Lenort.
The cooperation between ŠKODA AUTO University and the Czech Logistics Association is further deepened through a number of professional events attended by academics. Recently, the rector of ŠKODA AUTO University doc. Ing. Pavel Mertlík, CSc. took part in the Czech Logistics Day, where he led one of the introductory lectures of Czech Logistics Day 2017 on the theme of Qualification of the Workforce as an Instrument for the Prosperity of the Modern Economy.
