Central and Eastern European Experience of the X-Culture Project in Teaching International Management and Cross-Cultural Communication

Publicado en línea: 04 Oct 2018
Páginas: 5 - 41

Resumen

Abstract

Objective: Our paper examines the X-Culture challenges and experience through the eyes of professors and students alike and draws attention to the significance of such projects in international business practices in addition to examining the key influencing factors of interculturalism and ICT technologies.

Methodology: The students were asked to share their experience with us in a report or at an interview. Most participants considered the program to be very useful. They made the greatest progress in understanding and communicating with others and also appreciated working and collaborating with the others from different working cultures. The research was carried out in the countries of Eastern Europe to present our experience.

Findings: One of the consequences of globalization is that the various forms of contact are becoming independent of place. Adaptation to the new dimensions can be eased if the students can take part in international cooperation. A lot of students have improved their chances of landing an attractive job on the labor market and extended their social and professional networks by participating in X-Culture International Student Collaboration Project. Challenges were posed mainly by differences in time, but also cultural differences and language barriers were frequent.

Value Added: The students of our universities have taken part in the X-Culture program. In addition to studying the course material and gaining special skills in writing business plans, challenges can be experienced, and best practices learned.

Recommendations: It is extremely important in shaping the business environment of future workplaces so that is why such programs should be included in the curricula of business schools and management development programs.

Abstract

Objective: This paper reviews the major family business research papers that address factors related to relationship and work-to-family conflicts.

Methodology: The procedure this paper applies follows recommendations for literature reviews by Fink (2010) consisting of: (1) selecting a research question (2) selecting bibliographic or article databases, (3) choosing search terms, (4) applying practical screening criteria, (5) applying methodical screening criteria, (6) doing the review and (7) synthesizing the results.

To date, research on conflict in family firms remains underdeveloped in the CEE.

Publicado en línea: 04 Oct 2018
Páginas: 63 - 82

Resumen

Abstract

Objective: The objective of this paper is to explore the antecedents and consequents of student experience in higher education settings. Several variables such as co-creation value, social environment, physical environment and relational benefits are predicted as antecedents and consequents of student experience.

Methodology: The authors proposed the conceptual framework to identify antecedents and consequents of student experience in higher education.

Findings: Theoretically there is a possibility to create and the use of co creation in the higher education context to enhance student experience. The other factors should also be considered, such as physical environment (ambient, design and IT), social environment (Employee displayed emotion, and customer climate), and relational benefits. The findings suggest the necessary changes in how higher education institutions should be marketed with more focus on creating, communicating, and delivering value to enhance student experience.

Value Added: The author’s perspective on antecedents and consequents of student experience is a new interesting theme in higher education marketing. The paper proposed a testable propositions regarding the antecedents and consequences of student experience.

Resumen

Abstract
