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.
