Dear colleagues and friends,
In making preparations for the upcoming visit to Timisoara in Romania, we like to introduce some of the activities of the Dutch and Romanian students. Last year, we informed you through a different site: Timisoara 2011. If you are interested, feel free to have a glimpse.
Most probably you are more interested in the well-being and progress of activities of the current group of students, who are eager to share this with you.
This year the Project "Bringing Cultures Together" will be implemented in Romania. We are looking forward to meet and see our counterparts and to discuss three special topics within the context of International Human Resource Management.
These topics are: Career planning, Leadership and management development and Recruitment & Selection.
On each of these topics the students will carry out research in Romanian international organizations, which are based in Timisoara.
International business is getting more and more important in a globalized era. All kinds of European organizations have to deal with cross cultural questions in order to work effectively at an international level. HR has to play an important role in a number of questions.
With this in mind, about six years ago, CHE started a cross cultural project with the participation of Romanian and Dutch students.
It is an achievement that international partners like the West University of Timisoara and the Ede Christian University for Applied Sciences are collaborating smoothly within this project.
This year the colleagues from the of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration organized the project in Timisoara. So a lot of credits is going to Prof. Dr. Nicolae Aurelian Bibu, Head of Management Department and to his colleague Dr. Ec. Denisa Abrudan .
The cross-cultural HRM project has been realized six times with distinctive results. The core of the project is an educational process, in which students from different cultures, are depending on the input of students from another, different culture.
Wishing you a lot of pleasure and a good impression of your favourite protégées while digging through the folders below.
Denisa Abrudan and Kor van der Helm.
