Graduation diplomas were offered in a ceremony yesterday, in the presence of the professors, business leaders who taught them during the two years, and representatives of ABSL member companies who supported them through scholarships and internship programs.

The business services industry, one of the most profitable in Romania, has a market potential of 300,000 people and currently employs around 120,000 people. The need for skilled workforce has determined companies to be creative in spotting and educating the talent in people, including the development of a Master's Degree in Business Services.

The Master program was created by ABSL in partnership with the Bucharest University of Economic Studies (ASE), within the Faculty of Accounting and Management Information Systems and currently offers 50 seats for students interested in a career in the field. Out of these, 30 seats are funded by ABSL member companies. This year, the enrollment in the program takes place from July 23 to 25 and includes a written exam and an interview.

"Starting from a common need for qualified workforce in our member companies, ABSL decided to create a Master Program that combines theoretical and practical knowledge. Our program is designed to prepare young graduates for the present requirements of companies, giving them a real chance to find a position in a fast-developing industry offering impressive opportunities. We are grateful to all the benefactors of our program, proud of the first generation of graduates and we hope to replicate the program in other Universities." said Cătălin Iorgulescu, Vicepresident ABSL.

Master's courses are taught by ASE teachers and the seminars by experienced industry experts employed by ABSL member companies. An extremely important part of the seminars are case studies where master students are faced with market reality and examples of good industry practices and practical projects.

"Graduates of this master's program are starting their careers being prepared with the critical skills and know-how necessary to advance in specialists roles in the within the business services. It has been a real pleasure to provide my 10+ years of experience to such talented young people and prepare them for a smooth and effective integration into the workplace", said Cătălin Şerbănescu, Quality Assurance Manager Stefanini and Associate Professor in the Business Services Master.

"To highlight the strong link between the Business Services Master program and the business realities, its worth mentioning that one of the Master's Degree Thesis was describing a project that was recognized for its practical value and implemented globally in the business operations of a BPO company", said Associate Professor, PhD.,. Ionuţ Anica-Popa, ASE representative.
