Bachelor students of Managerial Economics will get access to MyEconLab!

MyEconLab is an online homework and tutorial resource that helps students to practice and gives educators the flexibility to create assignments and formally test online.

Each MyEconLab is developed to match the content and learning outcomes of an associated Pearson textbook and includes responsive learning tools such as an eBook, Economics News blog, active graphs, online glossary, flashcards and algorithmically generated problems.

The power of MyEconLab lies in the combination of assessment, reporting, and personalised study that helps both students and educators succeed.

It can be used by students for self-directed study or educators can fully integrate this technology into the delivery of their course. This has the dual benefit of saving valuable administrative time and bringing learning to life for students with an interactive multimedia approach.

 

International Business programme joins the X-Culture project!

First year Master students of the Cross Culture Management course will have a unique opportunity to participate in the International X-culture project.

Participating students are assigned to international teams of 5-6 members that are tasked to prepare a business proposal for a large multi-national company, each being a leader in a particular industry (such as Google, Inc., HSBC Holdings, McDonald’s Corporation, Toyota Motor Corporation, Walt Disney Company and others).

Every semester, thousands of students and professionals from over 40 countries take part in the X-Culture competition!
