The Department of Customs and Freight Forwarding at the Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality – Ohrid, University of St. Kliment Ohridski – Bitola, first joined the CEEPUS network of “Fostering sustainable partnership between academia and industry in improving applicability of logistics thinking (FINALIST)” –- in the academic year of 2016/2017.
The FINALIST is in compliance with the internationalization of university studies and address two basic pillars of the Danube Region strategy regarding improving people and freight mobility (logistics), as well as development of the knowledge society. Logistics as the most powerful tool for achieving ultimate strategic business advantage is a living and dynamic system, highly sensitive to all changes brought by the globalization. These changes drive a “new” logistics thinking, which should be appropriately disseminated. Knowledge exchange is integral to the success of the whole society. Therefore, the universities have to move on to the colored by practice and internationalized study programs, subsequently making them more oriented globally and less shaped by national perspectives and examples. Thus, the main network’s aim is to promote and implement the sustainable and internationally recognizable logistics knowledge transfer between industry and academia.
