Erasmus + (key action 1) mobility of students in distance learning programs Empirical analysis based on the example of International Business School Botevgrad, Bulgaria

Annotation: Digitization of education and implementation of online learning platforms are changing not only the way in which knowledge is provided from the universities but also the profile of students. In this respect, distance learning is preferred by individuals who, for one reason or another, are unable to physically attend lectures. A priority objective of the paper is to determine the willingness of distance learning students from International Business School - Botevgrad (Bulgaria) to apply for a mobility of a minimum 3 months study period under the Erasmus + program (KA1). Primary data is collected on the basis of in-depth interviews (n = 15). As a main conclusion of the data analyses, it can be stated that the participation of students in Erasmus + (KA1) study mobility, for at least 3 months period of time, is perceived as "difficult to be achieved" by the respondents participating in the survey. The present research paper helps to better understand the extent to which distance learning students are motivated to participate in mobility.

Clio in the business school : historical approaches in strategy, international business and entrepreneurship

Clio in the business school : historical approaches in strategy, international business and entrepreneurship

discussion about how history and business scholarship might more effectively engage with each other. We venture that the clearer articulation by historians, and the adoption by business scholars, of rigorous historical methods and perspectives may well help to inform theoretical turns within the business and management fields in a way which allows both to work more effectively together. Furthermore, there are clear benefits to historians from this approach. An open debate about methodologies and practices in history would open the doors for non-historians to better understand the rigour required in historical research, making the discipline more transparent and engaging. The necessary transparency and articulation of methodological rigour in social science research is often missing from historical research. A debate bringing it to the fore amongst historians would have the dual benefit of the aforementioned transparency, and exploring ways forward for the discipline which will require new ways of working as archives change and masses of data generated through the proliferation and adoption of communications technology continues apace. A debate around methodologies in historical research would ensure that the discipline keeps pace with these changes.

An Overview of International Business

An Overview of International Business

Finally, western multinationals have to contend with the international ambitions of emerging market companies as well. in recent years, there has been a trend wherein companies from India and China as well as Brazil and Russia have started to make rapid strides in their expansion plans overseas. Hence, it cannot be said that the flow of capital is unidirectional alone. In many ways, it can be said that the global economy is now at a stage where it is anybody’s game and hence, the world is indeed flat for those with the innovative edge, hard work, and sustainable business models.

One of the most commonly used financial instruments is the plain vanilla interest rate swap (IRS). Table 2.1 shows some over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives statis- tics obtained from the Bank for International Settlements. 2 The numbers clearly show that interest rate derivatives are by far the dominating type compared to OTC derivatives on foreign exchange, equity and commodities—even when com- bined. In an IRS two counterparties agree to exchange two series of payments. In the following we will assume, that a series of fixed payments are exchanged for a series of floating payments. These two components of the IRS are referred to as the fixed leg and the floating leg respectively. Each party’s position in the swap is named relative to the fixed leg. Hence, the person paying the fixed rate has entered in to a payer swap and the person paying the floating rate (and thus receiving the fixed rate) has entered in to a receiver swap.

Purchasing power parity in Asian economies: further evidence from rank tests for cointegration

Purchasing power parity in Asian economies: further evidence from rank tests for cointegration

This study applies the Breitung rank tests in testing the validity of PPP in the case of Asian countries, including Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines. This study uses the quarterly end-of-period yen based nominal bilateral exchange rate and consumer price index (CPI) over the period 1974:1-2004:2. These data are obtained from the International Financial Statistics of the IMF. Meanwhile, relative price is constructed as the ratio of domestic and foreign CPIs. All series are log-transformed.

These two shared collocates indicates what general business attach importance to, with other collocates aiming at the same purposes, e.g., “sales growth” in CLS, and “revenue growth”, “profitable growth”, and “growth markets” in USLS. Other strong collocates of “growth” in CLS contains “maintained” “steady growth”, “stable growth”, and “rapid growth”, “growth rate”, “sustainable growth”, and “strong growth”. However, to take a closer look at the strong collocates of “growth” in USLS, frequently occurring patterns contains “growth opportunities”, “organic growth”, “high growth markets/businesses”, “earnings growth”, and “EPS growth”.

The significant influence of school safety management on school safety in selected international schools in Bangkok, Thailand

The significant influence of school safety management on school safety in selected international schools in Bangkok, Thailand

Bullying is recognized as a form of violence that can also undermine other primary rights such as health, safety, dignity and freedom from discrimination. The Thai Constitution law states that every child has the right to receive quality education in a safe environment, but there are no specific rights that can protect sexual orientation or gender identity. There is an increased risk for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender students of experiencing homophobic or transphobic bullying, due to the absence of rights to protect them. No research have been done on the impact of homophobic bullying in schools in Thailand, but the worldwide evidence available suggests it is general and prevalent (Boonmongkon, 2013). Homophobic or transphobic bullying can lead to withdrawing from social interactions in class, academic underachievement and dropping out of school (Boyd, 2012). UNESCO and Plan International Thailand are in the process to address this problem by entering a partnership with the Centre for Health Law at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities at Mahidol University to investigate the issues of bullying, violence and victimization to homophobic/transphobic among lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transsexual secondary school students in Thailand (Boonmongkon, 2013)

International Students’ Satisfaction with the Services of Agriculture Bank of China

International Students’ Satisfaction with the Services of Agriculture Bank of China

Probability sampling method was used in the research where primary and sec- ondary data was also used in the analysis of the study. The primary source from the well-structured questionnaires administered to the international students’ and the secondary data obtained from the internet, unpublished articles, journal, staff from the Pancheng Branch and the like. The questionnaire was the main source of data of which it was collected through an application called Question- Pro which made easy in answering the questions of the researcher. The demo- graphic data such as the age, gender and the like, customer satisfaction of prod- ucts and service of the bank such as employee’s reliability, quick response to customer’s plight was captured in the questionnaire. A closed-end Likert scale-typed questionnaire was administered making it easy for the respondent to select answers such as Strongly agree, Agree, Neutral, Disagree and Strongly disagree and other aspects such as Highly satisfied, Somewhat satisfied, Neutral, Somewhat Dissatisfied and Highly dissatisfied. The study used STATA analytical tool in the presentation and interpretation of data. According to (Shamoo & Resnik, 2003), various analytical procedures endow with ways of deducing in- formation from data and separating the irrelevant materials. STATA enables it to be seen clearly in a graphical form. STATA preserves a lot of time trying to look for a command from the menu if you can type it. Command type can also be saved in the do-file for future use.

The Anatomy of International Students’ Acculturation in British Universities

The Anatomy of International Students’ Acculturation in British Universities

adequately in their institution, the assistance of the Local Volunteer Group (LVG) that consists of various members of which most are Christian, also comes handy. Similarly, Khawaja and Stallman (2011) found that students benefit significantly from joining some social organizations and activities to cope in the different cultural environment. Furthermore, they highlighted other coping strategies as developing time management, good organization, development of prioritization skill for the tasks, and learning about what constitutes interest of the domestic students. While this study and the findings relate to the Australian context where the study took place, the extent to which the findings reflect the UK context is yet unclear and is a worthy research endeavor. Meanwhile, the foregoing seems to lend support to the claim in Findlay et al.’s (2012) study that study abroad helps international students to accrue social and cultural capital. They also suggest that the ‘world-class’ education for some students is closely linked to a mobility culture that attaches symbolic capital to international living. Nevertheless, these postulations have not been adequately focused on overseas students’ acculturation especially in the British education sector. Hence, this is a fertile research domain for updating the literature.

The Influence of Business Networks on the International Trade of Small Businesses

The Influence of Business Networks on the International Trade of Small Businesses

There is overwhelming evidence corroborating the notion that entrepreneurs who have an access of wide network can identify more business opportunities (Kontinen & Ojala 2011; Englis et al. 2007). Engaging in the business networks is also very instrumental in the foreign market acquisition and even this information publicly available, entrepreneurs tend to use social network ties to obtain this information (Uzzi & Lancaster 2003), probably since it is more reliable and proven beneficial (Musteen et al. 2013). Tok (2015) argues that network embeddedness benefits from the informal links in the networks, as well as the mutual trust and solidarity among the network participants. Melen (2009) argues that a firm’s knowledge intensity relates to its development of foreign market knowledge within business network relationships.

Ethics in international business

Ethics in international business

Corporate social responsibility, along with such variants as corporate citizenship and sustainability is the new business credo. Many leaders of the business world have come to realize the consequences of globalization for their companies, therefore defending a consensus regarding the fact that companies are liable towards the communities they serve and rely on. This proves that companies in real world are not those rational actors of Adam Smith, led by their own interest and not by good intention. Milton Friedman (Smith’s modern American successor), which specifically rejected the notion of corporate social responsibility in a still widely quoted 1970 New York Times Magazine article entitled ―The Social Responsibility of Business is to Increase its Profits‖ is contradicted as well by the economic reality. That is why Tom Price considers that „Adam Smith and Milton Friedman must be spinning in their graves‖ (Price, 2009: 3).

The invention of the business school

The invention of the business school

Despite these ideals, the early business schools were beset by numerous operational problems due to their rapid expansion and haphazard development. Some of these problems are still familiar to many of us today who find ourselves working in business schools or management departments: overcrowded classrooms, muddled curricula, poor standards of research, and low-quality teaching from over-stretched and under-trained staff. On top of these systemic difficulties, there was also the question of reconciling the higher aims of the early business schools with the somewhat baser aspirations of their students, namely, to make lots of money by becoming an executive in a large organization. By the end of the twentieth century, the latter set of values would eventually come to displace the former, thus signalling the triumph of market logic at the expense of management’s professionalization project.

International Trade Agreements and Organizations Chapter 5.ppt

International Trade Agreements and Organizations Chapter 5.ppt

• July 1944, just a couple of weeks after the Normandy invasion, the Western Allies' leading politicians got together at a resort in northern New Hampshire to set forth their notions of how to reorganize the world economy. For the first time in human history almost universal institutions - the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) - were established to solve global economic problems. By setting up a system of rules, institutions, and procedures to regulate the international monetary system.
