Live Locally, Learn Globally

 17 March 2018

CHEI PhD student Dolly Predovic delivered the introductory speech at a recent conference in Montenegro entitled Live Locally -  Learn Globally. Dolly spoke about internationalisation at home as being part of an essential stategy for Montenegro to internationalise higher education. Since so many students are not in a position to go abroad to gain experience and knowledge of other countries and other cultures, universities have to offer these students the opportunity to become international in their own university.

Held on 7-8 March in Podgorica by Hipotekarna Bank and the Hon. Consulate of Montenegro in Milan, the conference was widely reported in the local media. Among the 300 participants were the Italian Ambassador, government ministers, the Governor of the Central Bank, university deans and rectors, professors and researchers, and most important of all, students. 

Dolly is founder of Career Paths, a consulting company in the field of education, and since 2015 has been Honorary Consul of Montenegro for Lombardy, Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta (Italy). She is currently in her first year of the CHEI PhD programme on higher education internationalisation, doing research on graduate employability.
