Lately, in Romania, a lot of campaigns for promoting the entrepreneurship were initiated, which led to a development of the knowledge about business and companies. The role of the schools was the most important in these campaigns as there were many students interested in entrepreneurship. This led to the apparition of a new notion, "training firm". This concept was used for the first time in Romania in 1996, as a new teaching method, following the Austrian model. This represents the model of a company, with educational purpose.
Between 1997 and 2001 in Romania there were a few training firms and they didn't have a direct connection with the international web.
Starting with 2001 the number of training firms has increased so that, nowadays, there are over 5000 firms registered in the national agency ROCT - Centrala Re?elei Firmelor de Exerci?iu/?ntreprinderilor Simulate din Rom?nia.
ROCT is an online platform used by the students for all the activities in their companies, starting from the foundation of the company, to promoting their own products, meeting the suppliers, making transactions, online payment and all the other activities that are run in a company.
The ROCT platform has not only the intermediary role, but it is also a way of informing on the specific activities of the different training firms across the country and abroad, on the contests organized in different places, on the regulations concerning the activity of the firms.
This paper is a case study on the activity of the training firms through the online platform and its importance in the exchanges that help students and teachers use ideas and resources from all over the country and even the continent in order to be prepared for the real business world.
