Engle Conquers Virtual Borders


Allen D. Engle, Sr., Foundation Professor of Management and the Harold Glenn Campbell Endowed Chair of International Business was two places at one time on Friday morning, September 29th – thanks to Skype technology.

At 9:30 am (3:30 Central European time) Engle was the Keynote Speaker at the HSZOSZ (Hungarian Human Resource practitioner) Conference on the campus of Debricin University in Debricin, Hungary (the country's second largest city). This year’s conference theme was ”Impact of Globalizations and other Changes on Human Resource Management".

Originating in his EKU office, Engle delivered his keynote address, "Trends and Tendencies in the HR Practices of U.S. Firms”. The 30-minute Skyped presentation was moderated on site in Debricin by Professor József Poór, an academic affiliated with several universities in Hungary, Slovenia and Romania and a long-time research collaborator with Engle. Afterward, the audience actively engaged in fifteen minutes of translated questions and answers.

Having concluded his Hungarian keynote address, Engle personally joined colleagues in EKU's Business and Technology Center. At EKU, the last Friday in September is set aside for Assurance of Learning activities. The Department of Management, Marketing and International Business had convened for the day to review curriculum, discuss leaning objectives, teaching strategies and new program options. The day is also set aside for faculty to share academic experiences from the past academic year.
