COFEP is part of a worldwide network of practice enterprises called OPEN worldwide. It prepares trainees for the real business world by setting them to work in virtual companies. In this way, COFEP stimulates their entrepreneurship by immersing them in a business reality with ERP business processes and (inter) national partnerships. E-commerce also has been part of this for a few years now. Students get the opportunity to follow a course that results in a webshop for their own virtual company.
