Business Schools in Dynamically Developing Societies: Identification of Management Models and Challenges of Eurasian Integration

January 13, 2017, 09:30 – 11:30, Building 2, 2nd Floor, Room 237

The term dynamically evolving society is widely used at conferences on transition economies. In the revised mission of the Association of Business Schools from Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEMAH), the special focus is on the emphasis the Association makes on business schools “functioning in transitional and dynamically evolving societies.”

The majority of deans of business schools in countries with transitional and dynamically evolving societies believe that management models and business specifics in these countries have a lot in common. However, serious and structured studies or attempts to make international expert judgments of these problems have not been made so far, or were limited and not fully representative in nature. This makes essential the discussion of opportunities and areas of collaboration between businesses in dynamically evolving societies.

The problem becomes even more important with the intensification of the development of Eurasian cooperation observed in recent years. The new impetus to Eurasian cooperation was provided with the ‘New Silk Road,’ an integration project proposed by China (international project title: “One Belt - One Road”). The project aims to expand the economic integration of the dynamically evolving Asian countries both among themselves and with countries of the Near and Middle East, Africa, Europe and America. The project provides for mutual research of business cultures and cultural tolerance, and a wide range of mechanisms for mutually beneficial cooperation based on the principles of trust and respect. The project focuses on formation of a new value paradigm, which will form the basis for economic, political, cultural and educational cooperation between a wide range of countries and continents.

In the event of success, the concept may have a strong impact on business schools of dynamically evolving societies, giving rise to new challenges and opportunities.
