The new academic year of 2015/2016 will begin for all the EBS students with a traditional opening ceremony in the Estonian National Library. The Master´s students will have a real kick off with Boot Camp – an intensive opening course that lasts several days, does not take place in an auditorium or web environment, but in a beautiful natural environment and brings together freshmen and fresh air, theorists and practicians.
Boot Camp means an intensive weekend full of learning and making new acquaintances. Boot Camp takes place in the middle of September in Roosta Holiday Village and aims to supply an in-depth introduction into the structure and outcome(s) of every study programme, and advice on how to plan time during the studies. Of course, the aspect of socializing is of importance as well , and aims to facilitate collaboration and synergy between people with different competencies and ideas at an early stage.

The feedback of students and experience of organisers revealed that it was a very motivating and effective way to bring the students up-to-date to the programme and make personal contacts. We believe that it will become a long term tradition of EBS,“ says the Vice Rector for Studies and Development of EBS Toomas Danneberg.
