College of Applied Professional Studies and BAT have been successfully collaborating for almost 15 years. As one of College partners in Dual Education, BAT enabled its students to apply their theoretical knowledge in a real-world environment by performing professional practice in this company. In this way, students also apply theoretical knowledge they gained through participation in the project titled BOND (Project No. CB007.1.21.159, To BOND entrepreneurial learning with primary and secondary schools and universities with the aim of curriculum enhancement and entrepreneurial competences improvement for the purpose of facilitating employment of young people).
Students and their professors were addressed by Mr. Richard Vredenberg. Praising the cooperation between the College and BAT, pointing out the importance of education and continuous improvement, and reminding those present that thirty College graduates have already worked in the company, Mr. Richard Vredenberg encouraged students to apply for jobs in this international company, and expressed expectations to improve the cooperation between the two institutions. Mr. Nyaka Tamas also addressed the students and their professors. During informal interviews, both the former and the current director at BAT encouraged students to continue their professional development, emphasizing that students, regarded as professional staff required by this company, could find job opportunities at BAT.
