2019 Edition

The eighth edition of the Global Competitiveness Program for SMEs (GCPyMES) was held during two weeks in the School of Economics of the Universidad Nacional Del Litoral (UNL), from 29th July to 9th August, 2019. The Program was attended by 23 students, 10 students from Universitá Politecnica delle Marche (Italy), 3 from Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (Germany), 3 from the Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and 7 students from the School of Economics of the Universidad Nacional Del Litoral (Argentina).

This program gives students the opportunity to get in contact with real companies in Argentina presenting real problems they face.  It is a challenging experience where not only attendants put in practice the knowledge they got at regular courses but most importantly, offers the opportunity to communicate, work and share with colleagues from other parts of the world, working together in a consultancy-like experience.



About the Program

The Global Competitiveness Program for SMEs (GCP) is an international training program to do consulting work, especially focused on Small and Medium Enterprises that aim to enter into the international competitiveness environment.

This is a joint development program between the School of Economics “G. Fuà” of the Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy, and the School of Economics of the Universidad Nacional del Litoral (UNL), and is based on the developed experience of the Italian school with the College of Business at Ohio University, USA, that have been working on this program for 20 (10) years.

The project aims to improve students’ intercultural experience, by working in multinational teams doing business consulting and solving real problems for real companies. Students must prepare a business plan to be delivered, in the last day of the program, to the company’s management. Professors from both schools will be tutors and advisors to the teams.

The proposed assignments will be based on real companies of the region of the School of Economics, UNL, Santa Fe, Argentina, and they will be focused on any aspect of their international performance. Due to its characteristics, the entire program is conducted in English.
