15.09.2016: CIRCLE PhD Seminar

An obligatory part of PhD program at the Virtual college CIRCLE International (housed at the University of Vitez, BH) is the completion of oral comprehensive examination and defence of the thesis proposal in front of the committee. This year the CIRCLE PhD-Seminar took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which offered participants a great travelling opportunity to Balkans.

Alina Pukhovskaya (CV) visited the PhD-Seminar in Vitez and shared some impressions from the trip: "Bosnia and Herzegovina due to its geographical location had been repeatedly involved in major historical events such as the World War I (assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo) and the World War II (multi-ethnic resistance groups lead by Josip Broz Tito). Also it had been under the influence of different empires Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian and never lost itself but adjusted, taking the best out of the new cultures. However, the Bosnian War (19921995) caused so much pain and destruction that up to today every detail brings back the memories of the terror. Both photos are taken in the same city Mostar, which combines beautiful (renovated) old city and bombed business center."

10.08.2016 : Wealth of Nations

The first decade of this century was dominated by the open borders for internationalization/globalization which was leading to an increase of wealth of those participating in liberal trade.

Now the BREXIT as well as restrictions within trade laws of Hungary, Poland, Romania as well as the trade conflict with Russia decreases the expectations of growth. Academia has failed to teach liberal social economics ! Unfortunately now national Emotio starts again to dominate Ratio ! "The European Retail Academy will nevertheless (and against that tendency) promote the exchange of human capital because this is the basic way for international understanding" Prof. B.Hallier stated in a personal message to his member-universities.
