            Abstract

            The new phenomenon of global development education (GDE) has gradually penetrated the curricula in Slovakia. For the purpose of more comprehensively preparing future economic actors, who will operate in the new global economic and social environment, we have decided to incorporate this topic into the curriculum at the Faculty of Economics and Management, Slovak University of Agriculture (FEM SUA). The national research project KEGA, supported by the Slovak Republic 's Ministry of Education, Science, Research, and Sport, is also focused on this issue. Its objective is to develop a more comprehensive and current system of GDE for economic faculties in Slovakia, and to propose appropriate methods for its implementation into the educational process. This paper presents information about how the various themes and issues associated with the new educational approach are implemented into the curriculum at FEM SUA, as well as information on what new measures are proposed and are currently being gradually realized in order to clarify to the students the global dimension of processes and phenomena. The project is based on qualitative research undertaken via the study and analysis of public documents and of audio and video recordings made of faculty and at national discussion workshops. Through the analysis of individual discussions we identify not only the appropriate content of GDE within economics faculties but also the most appropriate forms for its implementation into the educational process at FEM SUA and at other economics faculties in Slovakia.
