The second week of April at MVŠO revolved around international cooperation. On the first day, lectures and workshops meant mainly for students were devoted to the theme of travel abroad within the framework of the Erasmus+ program. On the fourth and fifth days, a two-day international conference called the International Days of Science has taken place.
Approximately 60 academics from 11 countries have been in attendance at this event. Even Jan Mendling from the Vienna University of Economics and Business, who, according to official records, has been quoted by others more than 20 000 times and is therefore considered to be one of the most influential scientists of modern times, also couldn´t miss the chance to participate,
He expressed his impressions thusly: This is my first visit to Olomouc, I am greatly pleased to have received an invitation to this conference where I can discuss various approaches to modern trends in the areas of IT as well as business procedures. This conference is a place ideally suited to synergy, for a dialogue among experts in similar or related fields. I must say, that I feel very enthusiastic about the campus which is being built. I like the overall concept of the school premises and the way it fits in with its urban surroundings. I am very much looking forward to meeting a whole row of Czech academics and other personages from the world of business in this particular place.“
.“I find it super that those who were here for this conference in previous years are coming back here again. What is more, we are also being successful in attracting newly invited significant scientists from abroad. I ascribe this in particular to the specialized inclination of the appropriately composed conference program, and, of course, the friendly atmosphere and the chance for all involved to mutually share their know-how. This year we were able to put together a very enticing program. I myself am especially looking forward to the section dedicated to economic analysis, at which Lucía Morales of the Dublin Institute of Technology, will speak about the issue of the international influence of the economy of China. In the same block, Chinese professors from the Guangzhou College of Technology and Business will present and thus we expect there to be a very lively debate in this session and at the same time the comparison of various methodological approaches, adds Jarmila Zimmermannová, the Rector of MVŠO.
In addition to the traditionally published proceedings, in which all these high-quality contributions can be found, the very best of the articles will also be published in a separate issue of the EMI scholarly journal, which regularly appears three times a year in both printed and electronic versions, which is based on an “open access“ approach. The best articles from the conference will also, after successfully passing a review process, be available to all interested parties online completely free of charge.
