8 Jun 2018 11:15AM

Students studying for their Masters in Business and Management (MBM) have benefited from a study tour to Romania.

The students were accompanied by the MBM lead Associate Professor Dr. Daba Chowdhury who said “Students benefitted from the chance to embrace a new culture while also sharing in an educational experience with fellow master’s students studying at Spiru Haret University.  While in Bucharest the students experienced local business operations, university life, parliament, and local culture all the while taking in some of the breath-taking sights that Romania has to offer.”

The group visited Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum for a tour of the open-air ethnographic museum located within the Herastrau Park.  They travelled to the village of Slatina located in the capital city of Olt Country where they held a conference on Corporate Social Responsibilities with a group of Romanian entrepreneurs.  

Completing the visit the students went to Spiru Haret University’s Faculty of Economic Sciences to attend a conference on Economic and Social Reality of Romania in a Changing Europe.  During the conference some of the students had the opportunity to present briefings to their Romanian peers.

Dr Chowdhury added “The study tour to Romania was an excellent  bridge development  within two countries and understanding the culture with  know-how appliance for the MBM students. They all thoroughly enjoyed their trip. We all hope that the cultural exchange was as beneficial for our Romanian counterparts as it was for us, as we look forward to welcoming Professor Manuela Epure and her colleagues into the UK in the near future.”

Student Tapiwa Tamocha said “The Romania exchange experience was exhilarating, the conference discussion in Slatina acted as a platform for us the student to put in practice the theoretical knowledge we had acquired from lessons. The Economic Conference at Spiru Haret on the other hand was eye opening, it was refreshing to get to hear and appreciate what other students are focusing their research on, as well as share/present on my dissertation. All in all, lasting connections were made in Romania that are bound to prove to be useful and worthwhile in the future.”
