General Information

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 six special topics within the context of International Human Resource Management.

These topics are:

— the impact of motivation on employee commitment
— international training and development
— recruitment and selection of staff for international assignment
— international compensation
— professional career planning
— HRM in Small & Medium Enterprises

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 seven 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 seven 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.
