BOC Academy Programme

Why is BOC Group offering an Academy programme?

BOC Group was founded more than 20 years ago as a spin-off of the University of Vienna. Since then, we have been deeply involved with research and spreading knowledge alongside our commercial offerings. Many of our employees are presently active as lecturers or guest lecturers. The constant information exchange with national and international educational institutions as well as our vast experience in research projects is a valuable asset for all. We are pleased to be able to give something back and to have this opportunity to provide students, lecturers and researchers with free platforms and content in IT-based management through the BOC Academy programmes.

Academic Cloud

The account provides free access to ADONIS or ADOIT for the duration of a course including preparation and review time (max. 8 months) for the lecturer and for all students. Access is a SaaS based, i.e no on-site installation is required. All access is via a standard web browser.

Academic Content

What material is available in the Academic Content?

BOC Group offers lecturers course materials for use free of charge. These include, for example, a BPMN course delivered with the support of presentation slides and accompanying exercises and sample solutions for process management. ADONIS and ADOIT are also pre-filled with comprehensive sample material, which you are welcome to expand with your own documents and required changes. In the case of even partial use of our content as part of your teaching courses, we value the correct citation. Accompanying video material as well as technical posters on BPMN and EA are also available to complete our offering.

Is there any other content available to get me started?

Academic Network & Practice

Can you explain the "Guest lectures and / or practical examples"?

The guest lecture is an opportunity to enrich the classroom lectures with session focusing on a specific topic. It can either be specialized know-how on the software (e.g. analyses, optimizations, etc.) or a specialist focus in terms of commercial practical experience. If you are interested in organizing a guest lecture, please contact us.
