Culture Research in IB – December 16th 2019
Prof. dr. Sjoerd Beugelsdijk
The purpose of this intensive one-day workshop is to discuss state of the art research on national cultural differences in IB. It is designed for academics interested in culture research in the multidimensional value based tradition (thus quantitative, not qualitative). This can be both experienced academics who have never been exposed to culture research yet do want to engage in culture research, and also young scholars who are working on their PhD in which a cultural component is present. The workshop assumes that participants have basic knowledge of multivariate statistics (factor-cluster analysis, regression analysis).

International Business Pedagogy Workshop
Tamer Cavusgil, Filip De Beule, Nukhet Vardar, Hinrich Voss, Attila Yaprak
This workshop provides a forum to learn about the latest innovations in case study thinking, to discuss case study development and related student assessment and also to share good practice.
Case studies have been used in business education for decades. The rich context they are able to provide concerning the behaviour of firms offers students valuable insights into the complexity of business, provides students with a means to apply or test theories against real life scenarios and also creates opportunities for students to critically evaluate problems or outcomes and to come up with solutions.
