The 5th International Week was held between 7-10 October 2013 with the aim to create a real international atmosphere at the Faculty. The week was a busy week with presentations and free time programmes for students, faculty, and anyone interested. The core of the programme was a series of presentations on various topics related to international experiences, opportunities, and to current issues in international business and economics. The International Week also offered activities where Hungarian and international students could meet and socialize. Besides, this year the Faculty introduced a game, and offered price for students attending the most programmes. The winner of the game won a one-day shadow management programme with Mr. Ádám Szentkirályi, Vice-CEO of AVEX Zrt.
Let’s see how the week went.
On Monday Professor Péter Mihályi’s presentation opened the International Week with introducing an interesting topic and offering useful tips and hints on how to publish in an international journal. The afternoon offered a colourful insight into cultures and abroad experiences; the audience could get to know better Germany, Italy, Transylvania, Latvia and Nigeria through the words of our Hungarian and international students spiced with lots of beautiful photos. On Tuesday the day started with the lecture of an honoured guest from the Netherlands, Professor Dirk-Jan Kamann held a lecture on the trends in marketing. The second half of the day provided valuable information for those who were interested in spending some months abroad studying or doing an internship; Mr. Károly Kopasz introduced scholarship opportunities. Later Professor Candy Fresacher brought Brasil to Veszprém for the evening, with her lively presentation on this far away country within the frame of the World Travellers’ Club. Even the night was dedicated to the international atmosphere! On Tuesday night an international party awaited the students in Club DC. On Wednesday Ms. Viktória Sziller held a discussion on working outside of Hungary, which was followed by an interactive intercultural training held by Ms. Janka Huják. The same day the Global Village evening brought the flavours of nations to the Faculty, where students could taste the national dishes of Spain, Poland, Romania, Turkey, Latvia and Kosovo. The closing day of the International Week was also rich in programmes. In the morning Ms. Vedrana Knežević and Mr. Mišel Jakšić gave presentations on the EU accession of Croatia and on municipal projects in Croatia. In the afternoon German Henao and Gábor Sándor from AIESEC lead discussions on the challenges of working in an international team and on intercultural differences.
The 5th International Week offered a palette of colourful programmes all organised around the topic of internationalisation. If you missed it this year, make sure you will not miss it next autumn!
