We focus on developing students' essential employability skills

UpSkill Programme by IBS is a novel initiative aiming to facilitate the success of IBS students during the job searching process and later, at work. It is crucial for us to assess, and develop the skills that are truly important and useful in the professional world. Therefore, we have created research in cooperation with Profession.hu, the leading Hungarian online job searching platform, to find hose business-related skills that are most in-demand on the job market. We are proud that HR professionals at HRBEST 2019 Talentshow have recognized our programme, where we received a gold qualification in the category named Attraction & Recruitment.

How does the UpSkill Programme work?

During the first year of BSc studies, IBS determines students’ initial ability to perform in six critical skills for employment: Written Communication, Oral Communication, IT, Analytical, Quantitative and Teamwork skills.

Later, they have the opportunity to participate in development workshops that are levelled according to their capabilities.

Once they have passed these modules, their newly acquired skills will be recognised through the issuance of ‘badges’: these are official mini-certificates that attest that the student has attained a certain achievement in the given area and is deemed worthy of obtaining that particular distinction.

UpSkill yourself!

  • Participate in personalised skill development.
  • Collect badges that can be attached to your CV and job applications.
  • Earn recognition for special interests and engagements.
  • Be connected to prospective employers.

Why is it important to us?

Based on our institutional strategy, IBS intends to further develop capabilities in various soft and hard skill provisions while further facilitating the connection between our students and their prospective employers. We envisage UpSkill Programme to become an industry standard, a best practice in personalised skill development.

IBS identifies, measures and recognises other skills and area-specific knowledge to build an insightful profile for each graduate: social engagement, extracurricular activities, as well as various other achievements, are monitored by IBS.

Badges and skill profiles are also collected on an online platform, IBS Talent.Net where students can access them and with their permission, we will make the badges accessible to prospective employers as well.
