The Balkan Case Challenge 2006 was officially closed on 1st of June in the premises of the Austrian Trade (WKÖ)

After 8 months of hard work and preparations, WUS Austria takes great pride in emphasizing that the BCC 2006 in Vienna has been a great success especially taken into consideration that it has been organized for the first time in Austria. According to the feedback which we have received from all parties involved in the implementation of the project (partners, sponsors and the participants), the BCC 2006 has been a great platform for exchange of the knowledge and what is even more important a threshold for future career opportunities for 145 students from participating countries thanks to the fact that the event was enriched by introducing the Job Fair/ Career Day for SEE.

The Job Fair took place on 1st of June at the Austrian Trade where around 30 Austrian companies presented themselves to the BCC participants for recruitment possibilities. The Job Fair has been organized in cooperation with the Austrian Trade. The benchmarks of the achievement in BCC 2006 are: 800 applications received, 145 participants, 34 awarded winners, 40 partners of the BCC 2006, 30 companies present at the Job Fair.

Many participants have stated in their evaluation forms that they most liked the international character of the event, meeting new friends from the region, atmosphere, city of Vienna and professional organization of the event. We thank all the participants for their interest and effort they have invested in solving complex cases which were presented to them.

For the first time the BCC event was held in the capital of Austria thanks to the support of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Foreign Affairs (BMaA) through the Austrian Development Agency (ADA). WUS Austria hereby expresses the sincerest gratitude to all our partners both from Austria as well as from the region of SEE.
