Ankit Chopra was born in Chandigarh, India and moved to the States two years ago to pursue a degree in Sports Administration thanks to a scholarship offer received from the tennis coach at Chicago State University. After his sophomore year there, he decided to transfer and UTC is the place where he believes great things will happen. Leaving India as a teenager was a difficult move but he is extremely happy for the decision he made although at first, he had to get used to the American culture living in a city as Chicago, where the cultural clash can be felt extremely fast. Culturally speaking, India is a very wealthy country and possesses a millenary history. According to Ankit there is a great diversity in religions being Hinduism the largest, followed by Sikhism, Islam, Christianity and Jainism. Despite he does not identify himself with any particular religion, he confesses to be amazed by the existent respect between religions in the USA. The most challenging aspect he faced when he first arrived to the States was the food. Back home, Ankit used to eat traditional Indian dishes, and although it’s not hard to find Indian restaurants in the US, college cafeterias hardly ever serve it. After a few weeks he found himself following a completely occidental menu loaded with fat calories. He soon realized a changed was needed or otherwise he would rapidly start gaining weight. Moving into an apartment where he could cook was the best solution. Moreover, English was not an issue for him. India’s has two main languages; Hindi and English, and most of the population speaks both perfectly. Furthermore, he highlights how passionate he became for American sports since he arrived to the country. India’s most popular sports are field hockey and cricket; sports such as football, basketball, or baseball have barely any exposure at all. Living in Chicago transformed him into a huge…...

...since a peak in 2004-2006. Skilled and highly-skilled workers (Tier 1 and 2 of the Points-Based System) take up slightly less than half of entry visas issued for work. A majority of non-EEA labour migrants coming to the UK are male; a majority of newly arriving labour migrants are aged 25-44. The largest numbers of non-EEA labour migrants are nationals of Asian countries, followed by the Americas; labour migration among Africans has declined since at least 2004. Understanding the evidence Labour migration involves people coming to the UK for the purpose of paid work. Depending on the source of data, measures of labour migration might involve people who say that they are coming to the UK because of a definite job or to look for work (International Passenger Survey data), or people who have permission to enter the UK through a workrelated visa (administrative data on visas and passenger entries). IPS and administrative data also differ on definitions of a migrant – IPS counts only those who intend to stay in the UK for at least a year, while visa and passenger entry data do not account for length of stay. This briefing focuses mainly on migrants who are from outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland, and who are therefore subject to immigration controls and tracked in Home Office data on visas issued and passengers entering. Of course, many EEA and Swiss nationals do come to the UK to work, and are included in IPS data (along with British nationals). EEA/A8......

...Target Audience: American citizens that concern about the role and impact of international students to the economy. Having International Students, Gain or Loss to U.S. Economy? The fame of the United States for education attracts many international students to this country every year. Besides being a good host, a portion of American citizens does not realize great contributions that international students bring to the economy. Moreover, there are even worries and complaints that international students are taking jobs away from domestic citizens after the President extended the time for international students to remain in the U.S. “the change could hurt U.S. job-seekers by making them compete against more foreign graduates” (“Obama”). Therefore, people who hold similar ideas believe it is better to diminish the flow of international students. “Community colleges and small state colleges especially should resist the lure of the foreign student market” (Vaughan). All of these misunderstandings neglect the positive role of these students and may harm the country in the long term. Reasonably speaking, international students play a crucial part in America’s economy and should not intimidate qualified job seekers. Providing education to international students is the lowest risk export. As data collected from the U.S Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis, education ranked the third in U.S trade in private services in 2009 (Ward). In other words, education can be......

Business environment has totally changed due to globalization. Firms are operating in a highly unpredictable environment. It is difficult to determine what the future market would bring.

... globalization for marketing managers; *  globalization for sociologists. However, the term “globalization” is ambiguous, and this gives rise to confusion. In reference to Held et al. (2000), one reviewer argued the term has fallen into misuse, and social scientists of all disciplines needed to define precisely what they meant by it. As the authors acknowledge, the term is “in danger of becoming the cliché of our times, the big idea which encompasses everything from global financial markets to the internet but which delivers little substantive insight into the contemporary condition. 35.Globalizations for politicians and political scientists. In politics and international relations the term “globalization” refers generally to increasing dependencies between national and international bodies. Barriers between nation states are reduced in importance and hence the autonomy of nation states is undermined. National governments and their agencies lose responsibility for and control over local decision-making, and individuals are even further removed from the locus of Power. This decline in local autonomy encourages the emergence of anti-state groups, including terrorist groups. For example, al-Qaida (the network) has operated over a range of countries throughout the world, and has itself taken on a global identity. In response to the new sources of conflict, nation states collaborate in building new forms of security by which they can be......

...International Management Research Report – Group EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The economic situation in Asian countries has been rising for the past few decades due to the large number of young productive population, investment of youth education and development of technologies in Asian countries. Therefore, most western countries, including Australia, are attracted to invest in Asian countries as their manufacturing base and export destination. Consequently, the rapid development of economy in China and other Asian countries has encouraged U.S and European Union to form a free-trade alliance in order to keep them as the market leader in the world economy. Hence, the trade between borders would be a lot easier and more companies will be encouraged to go international. Hence, global and intense competition in a worldwide scope will be created. By taking into account of those two events, this report will discuss the issues that are potentially faced by organizations which operate internationally, which is drawn by articles from Bartlett and Ghoshal. However, due to the limitation, the report will only discuss four major issues, The first issue will discuss about how companies create transnational companies. It is believed that businesses often fail operate internationally due to the incapability of fulfilling the needs for global integration, differentiation and innovation spreading simultaneously (pg. 7). The second issue will discuss about the implications in managing......

The paper aims to spot key reasons behind the declining performance the company experienced in the late 1990s a few years after the start of its globalization plan in the year 1987. The plan initiated under the new leadership of David Whitwam encountered many problems in its early stages illustrated in a declining profitability in its home market, losses in the European market and failure in some of its joint ventures in the Asian market.1 With such poor performance and failure in achieving competitive edges in global markets, Whirlpool was at a great risk of losing huge investments made in foreign markets, and losing highly-potential market shares in emerging international markets to aggressive competitors. The paper illustrates core strategic mistakes around three main strategies; sourcing and operations, entry, and marketing strategies adopted. The goal is to address lessons learned from Whirlpool’s experience in globalization in order to shed...
