3. The development of the human resources for the needs of the economy
The Department’s fellows are constantly raising their qualifications by conducting research, as well as by gaining professional qualifications. Last year Doctor Werner qualified as a taxation adviser and a counsellor-at-law. Due to their functions, the Department’s fellows conduct lectures at the postgraduate and doctoral studies offered by SGH. The Department is a co-organiser of Postgraduate Collegium designed for public prosecutors and judges, which is being conducted in co-operation with the Ministry of Justice. Doctor Morawska is the main enabler in this area.In the current academic year and a taxation law learning path has been launched. The utilitarian role of the learning path for the students is one of the path’s fundamental objectives. Therefore, ensuring broad contacts with entities offering taxation law consulting services as a part of their business activities is a very important element of its functioning. In order to guarantee that this objective is being met we have launched co-operation with companies dealing as partners with taxation consulting - Ernst &Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, SPD Ożóg i Wspólnicy and KPMG. The law and economics is the new specialization, as scientific and education activity of the Department started in 2008 year.
