Inivitation from EFMD
Posted on 06-12-2012 17:09
EFMD is pleased to announce the opening of recruitment for the 2013/2014 cycles of the Executive Training Programme (ETP).
The ETP targets EU managers and companies willing to develop their business activities in East Asian markets (mainly Japan and Korea). It provides support to the development of a business plan, as well as intensive executive business & language training run by internationally recognized universities in Japan or Korea and an internship in a local company, all of which is funded by the EU along with a scholarship for participants.
The currently pursued ambitious EU trade strategy with Korea and Japan, and growth in Asia make this fully EU-funded programme all the more relevant for European businesses looking for growth opportunities.
Given the proven value of ETP over the past years, and valuable EU support provided to companies in the current difficult economic context, we believe the ETP might be of great interest to your alumni network or business partners. We therefore ask you to distribute this information to your contacts. For that purpose we provide more detailed information below and in the attached programme leaflet.
EU executives and sponsor companies can apply by submitting an online application via www.euetp.eu. The deadline for applications is 31st May 2013. The executive training cycle will run from November 2013 to November 2014. There are 45 places available for ETP Japan and 15 for ETP Korea.
By sending an employee to the ETP, a company will:
- Develop its business plan for expansion in Asia
- Benefit from EU financial support
- Acquire in-house expertise in Japanese/Korean business practices, culture and language
- Establish a business network across Asia
- Get to know about its sector and product in Japan/Korea
- Find out customers needs and behaviour
- Ultimately increase its sales
If you wish to learn more about the ETP join the webinar organised by the ETP team on the 13th December 2012 at 9:30 CET. Register now at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4461595331264616448
Should you require more information, please do not hesitate to contact me or the ETP team at email@example.com.

EFMD: Access to free learning materials
Posted on 08-05-2012 22:56
EFMD would like to introduce theOpenScout portal: http://learn.openscout.net/, which provides a range of free services to anyone who wishes to learn or teach management topics using Open Educational Resources (OER). OER is digital learning material (courses, presentations, articles, videos, case studies, etc.) that can be freely used and adapted for training purposes. OpenScout has been designed to help students, teachers, business people and entrepreneurs learn, develop and discuss management topics and save you time and money at the same time. There is a wealth of quality, free management learning information from renowned and trusted educational institutions available on OpenScout. More is being added daily by our members. As OpenScout is a not-for-profit initiative, our search results are not biased by commercial ranking priorities, neither do we sell your information.
The portal will be officially launched with a series of fourwebinarsshowing you how you can take full advantage of OER in Business and Management topics. The webinars are free but you have to register for each webinar you are interested in using ourregistration form. You will be contacted via e-mail with more detailed information. All webinars will be madeavailable online. For more details about the webinars see below.
We are currently working towards a final version of the OpenScout portal. We therefore invite you to give us your opinion and impressions of the site so that we can make it more adapted to your needs. Completing thequestionnairewill take only 3 minutes of your time. To start the trial, please (if you havent already done so) register and login to theOpenScout portalor just use the search functions without registering. You can look for resources using the search function and interact with others using the community function.
We encourage you to view thevideo tutorials, which will guide you on how to make the best use of OpenScout. They will provide you with more details about searching, using the filters, tagging resources and dealing with property rights when using and adapting Open Educational Resources. We trust that you will also take the time to add some comments, (as this will assist other OpenScout users) and share any interesting resources you find with your friends and OpenScout users. The OpenScout community is an integral part of OpenScout, because we recognise that learning doesnt just take place in structured processes. The community allows you to network, share resources, debate and interact with other OpenScout users, and deepen and develop your knowledge of specific ideas. Please join one of the groups and contribute to a discussion, share useful resources with them or ask a question. You can also create groups, find and collaborate with people with similar interests to build on and re-develop management resources to serve your own specific purposes. The tools suggested by OpenScout will help you adapt the resources (for instance to change the language or format) and you can then publish your adapted resource back into OpenScout.
We have more exciting developments and content planned for OpenScout, so please come back regularly, join our webinars and share OpenScout with your friends!

SPACE President - Professor Honoris Causa
Posted on 06-06-2011 11:05
SPACE President Danute Rasimaviciene speaking to CBU 2011
My philosophy of life is simple and easy to understand.
To be grateful is the concept I follow and support it is my normal state of mind.
But then occasionally life prepares for me an exceptional present, then it takes me to the top I am always asking myself:
Am I strong enough to accept such a gift?
Sir Winston Churchill once said:
The price for greatness is responsibility.
But are we always ready to pay that price?
I am lucky Ive met a lot of responsible people, and I am still working with a lot of responsible people and organizations. Most certainly I have discovered that Constantin Brancoveanu University is one of those organizations and with many strong personalities.
SPACE the European Network for Business studies and Languages I am representing here - is actually only 2 years older that CBU. CBU and the Association grew together but till the year 2002 the doors to that purely Western European and EU network were closed to all Eastern European Universities and Colleges.
I am proud that my Vilniaus Kolegija/University of Applied Sciences was the first to enter the Network and to promote the policy of openness.
CBU was among the first Eastern European Universities to take responsibility of the representation of Romanian HEI and of the country as a whole.
Here I must to emphasize how important for the managerial bodies of the institutions is to make a right choice of a liaison person or director of international relations. Usually in international organizations the perception of the university or even a country depends on the behaviour of and thoughts expressed by the one person entitled to work on behalf of his or her university.
CBU joined the Network in 2006.
A perfect choice of a liaison person made by the managers of the University let both parties: SPACE and CBU benefit from the interaction and cooperation. SPACE acquired an active and trustworthy partner with a passion for quality and innovation.
In 2008 SPACE was invited to organize its Autumn Meeting here in Pitesti that meeting did a great job in disturbing all false assumptions Western Europeans had about Romania. Participants were taken in and impressed by a modern university with contemporary approach to studies and the mindful CBU attitude to the students and staff.
At the same time CBU:
- received access to all project outcomes and courses developed by SPACE members (more than 70 EHEI)
- gained a platform for the promotion of their business studies, Romanian culture and Romania itself in 24 European Countries.
- Enhanced its international visibility and attracted a lot of new Erasmus partners and in that way opened new study destinations for the students.
As a member of SPACE, CBU got a chance to become an active player in the field of Bologna process and to contribute to the development of European Higher Educational Systems.
A lot of possibilities related both to SPACE and to the cooperation with VIKO are still in a future. We could mention
- joint programmes
- double and multiple diplomas
- international weeks
- European projects
- Cooperation with the SPACE business partner society
- international internships
By awarding the title Professor Honouris Causa you are letting me in and inviting me to become part of your future development.
Its an honour.
It is a responsibility.
And I am accepting it with sincere gratefulness.
