BUDS (Building Up Digital Strategists) is a KA2 Strategic Partnership co-funded by the Erasmus+ of the European Union. Led by Tor Vergata University of Rome, the project involves a transnational partnership with University of Antwerp, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, University of Eastern Finland and Universidade Nova de Lisboa. Associate partners are Assoconsult Confindustria, Antwerp Management School and the YERUN network.
BUDS is a project that aims to explore innovative methodologies in education as key elements for connecting higher education institutions and the labour market and, as a result, enhancing graduates' employability in the area of Management Consulting, where the demand for professionals with digital skills is more and more increasing.
The Partnership was set up to follow two major objectives:
- explore innovative ways to use digital teaching technologies;
- transfer consulting skills as required for supporting digital transformation processes
