The considerable contribution to its country, Estonia, was proved by the TalTech School of Business and Governance, who recently completed the Business School Impact System (BSIS).
The Business School Impact System (BSIS) scheme is designed to determine the extent of a school’s impact upon its local environment – the city, region and country in which it is located. The BSIS process is offered in a joint venture between EFMD Global Network and FNEGE as a service to EFMD members in any part of the world.
TalTech SBG attracts significant numbers of exchange students from around 60 countries, which indicates a wider reputation than just within the Baltic region. The School has an impressive list of prominent and influential alumni, there is a rich and complex map of relationships with partners that reinforces the School’s influence and reach.
Professor Enn Listra, the Dean of TalTech SBG said: “BSIS results indicate that TalTech School of Business and Governance is fully playing its role as part of a technological university and is committed to the development of the local business community and to the practical educational experience of its students. The School is recognised as an important player in the educational, technological and political ecosystem in Estonia and the Baltic region. We encourage others to go through the BSIS process for the purpose of receiving a comprehensive overview of the dimensions of different activities and the extent of the impact. BSIS is a very clear mirror that helps anyone to understand themselves much better than before.”
Michel Kalika, the BSIS Director, added: “TalTech SBG has a very good reputation within Estonia and is well regarded in the Baltic region. The School and its students are an important resource for companies and public sector bodies in the region. Each year it places a flow of around 600 talented graduates onto the local job market. The School encourages entrepreneurial projects, among others, that are linked to the Science Park Technopol on the main campus and involve some 2000 students each year.”
