September is the time of the International Week! Fourth time has the Faculty of Business and Economics organised the International Week which is one of the semester opening events. During this week students participate in many professional and entertaining programs.

The two main pillars of the professional programs this year were the “Challenges and Promises in International Business” conference and the special lectures that were held within regular classes. The main topic of the conference presented best practices in intercultural communication, finance, strategy, logistics and network design.

Presenting lecturers were many well-known professors, such as Alt Monika Anetta (Universitatea Babes – Bolyai, Cluj-Napoca), Vincenzo Vespri (Universtà degly Studi di Firenze), Taha Bahadir Sarac (Nidge University) and of course our regular visiting lecturers: Candy Fresacher from Austria, Hans-Christian Pfohl from Germany and Nicholas Chandler from the UK. The Faculty’s host presenters were Dr. Lajos Szabó, Dr. Gyula Vastag and Dr. Alan Clarke.

The International Week offered colourful programmes to bring closer international topics. Students could take part in intercultural communication training by AIESEC, take an adventurous ERASMUS journey in Poland with Iván Varga, taste the flavours of a Summer School in Ankara with BEST and receive interesting information about Human Rights through a non-formal education game presented by Márk Szalma. Of course the traditional World Travellers’ Club took part as well. This time Csilla Zelkó guided the audience to the world of Ethiopia.

The International Party – the new program this year – was organised on Tuesday night with the co-operation of DC club where an international themed party awaited the students.

As a closing of this eventful week, on Saturday our international students offered samples of their own national food for the citizens of Veszprém in the downtown.

The night of magic…

török11Once upon a time there was an International Week at our University. Some students at the Faculty of Economics organised a Turkish Night. This Night began at 6 p.m. on 23rd September.
At first we watched some hungarian folk-tales. Noticing the Turkish concerns in the Hungarian folk-tales was very interesting. We saw fascinating pictures and short videos equally about Turkey, the plateau, tall hills and mountain ranges, a seacoast and sure about the people, who live there, and their culture. We watched exciting image films about this interesting country.
During the programme Asst.Prof.Dr. Osman Nuri Özdoĝan Turkish lecturer (The representative of Adnan Menderes University School of Tourism and Hotel Management institution) presented us Turkey in English. From the lecture we enriched our cultural, religious and tourism knowledge about Turkey. The Professor talked about the everyday life of the people who lives there, habits, a religion with surprising openness, from the country’s industry, its agricultural activity, moreover about the car manufacturing.
The International Folk Dance Club’s (Jó Hangulat Klub) dance instructor heightened the mood after the lecture. Everybody enthusiastically formed a circle in order to learn some Turkish traditional folk round dances. The Turkish Erasmus students showed it how to dance the real Turkish belly dance.
Then we played quiz. Participants formed groupes and the competition started. Naturally this programme was passed in a friendly mood and we laughed a lot. Many of Erasmus students attended the Turkish night, thus we played the quiz in two languages, in Hungarian and in English.The questions were about Turkey and we were happy to see several correct answers. All of us took delight in the turkish exchange student’s win because she got a Faculty of Economics souvenir.
During the night we had some problems, after all the lecturer and Erasmus students gave full marks to the organizer team on the Night.

A visit to the Dubniczay Palace

DubniczayOrganized by the Tourism Department, the International Tourism Conference visited by many lecturers from Hungary and abroad took place in September . After the first tiring day the organizers invited the visitors for dinner and a surprise program in the Dubniczay Palace. After the arrival we were welcomed by a lovely speech of Mr. PORGA Gyula, the Deputy Mayor of Veszprém. To ensure the cheery atmosphere, we were offered the national drink, a homemade pear “pálinka”. During the smorgasbord dinner we had the opportunity to have a nice chat to get to know each other a bit more.
The dinner was followed by a surprise program, which proved to be great for opening  the participants’ fantasy. We had to form groups and were led into a dark room where the groups had to observe the beauty of  art by torch. When the lights were turned on, we came to realize that the piece of art entitled to be a guitar, did not picture a guitar in reality . Other teams observing abilities were excellent too .The art entitled “The lovers” was perpetuated at their most intimate moment and drew a great interest among the participants.
The next task also proved to be stimulating. The teams had to tell stories generated by the pictures they had seen, which also suggested that these people possesed vivid fantasy. We heard the story of the sad girl, whose clothes were stolen and whose gooses were diverted while she was swimming in the lake, the story of the three frogs, which played music on the ship “Titanic”, the story of the couple who wanted to visit a ‘competitive destination’ with their donkey, but was not let into the “non allergic hotel”. The “mooing” and “huiing” of the shepherd boy, who woke up among cows in the morning, was also brilliantly demonstrated by the lecturers.
Before the last task, we had to climb up to the attic to take part in the game. We had to pair upthe interesting 20th century work of arts  with the funniest – and of course absolutely not fitting- titles.
No wonder that the program was a great success among the participants, because these neat games were truly enjoyable. We were also surprised to see that even these serious grown-up lecturers stand on the ground at entertaining their audience.

Japanese night – quick look back

japén est harcOn 29 September we had a great opportunity to participate at a very special night. For a whole night we ‘were’ in Japan. The program started with the Japanese fighting art show and the audience watched it with great attention and fascination. It was awesome.

The show was followed by a unique presentation of Norbert Kávási Dr., displaying pictures of his own. There was not a moment when we felt like we were sitting at a usual lecture. Of course, it was due to the fact that we got an insight into Japan not by a very strictly designed performance. The audience did not feel cramped, they were free to ask questions from the lecturer and he also liked involving the participants into his memories.

After the lecture, lasting a little bit over than 2 hours, came what the organisers feared the most: the sushi and green tea tasting. Even though they knew the Japanese food was not exactly what it should have been, they still tried to bring the most of it out. Judged by several visitors, it was quite good. There was not a negative feedback, or probably the people might have held it back, not to hurt their feelings. Anyway, the food and drink disappeared within 5 minutes.

The rest of the evening was devoted to playing Japanese games, organizing competitions. The evening ended with watching an anime movie ’Miyazaki’s Spirited Away’, by the famous Japanese director, Hayao Miyazaki. Visitors could also make origami, and play with sudoku, picking rice with sticks and playing mahjong.
It was really worth to “go to Japan”.

Short riport on Malaysian night

Malaysian night (fever)
Asia for beginners

malay2The event began at 6.30 p.m. on 28th September and everybody was very excited. There were about 70 people at the Malaysian night, and we can truly say nobody regretted coming. The rooms were decorated with beautiful flowers, and candles to create a special and exotic Asian atmosphere.
First, we could taste the colourful fruits and fill in the test about Malaysia. The winner could take home a voucher offered by Restaurant Tűztorony. Unfortunately, the presenter, who was supposed to introduce Malaysia couldn’t come, but it didn’t spoil the night, but fortunately the night was saved, as an enthusiastic volunteer stood in for the absentee. Then we watched exciting image films about the exotic country and its multi-national culture. We also had the opportunity to prepare flower origami, and taste the delicious cocktails.
Everybody left in excellent mood and a lot more in mind about Malaysia then before…

Thanks to the organizers…. – by GTK
