The changes in the business environment brought about by the Industry 4.0 revolution require employees to exercise their skills in a new context. The new context poses new challenges not only for entrepreneurs, but also for higher education, which is struggling to provide students with the best opportunities for comprehensive development. Considering the applicability of Virtual Exchange (VE) in business higher education, the main objective of this presentation is to show the usefulness of Virtual Exchange as a tool to enhance students' skills. It also aims to share good practices in planning and designing VE and solutions to common problems encountered during the projects, as well as to explore the possibilities of conducting VE in the area of Quality 4.0 and Industry 4.0.
