I am delighted to have more key experts and guest speakers coming to my seminar.
Most recently we had
Special Assistant to the President for Presidential Personnel
Katja holds the same position and duties under Presidents Reagan, Bush 41 & 43 and now for President Trump. She is the Operations Officer in the Office of Presidential Personnel, responsible for all non-career appointments. Katja directs the Correspondence Unit, the Resume Management Group, as well as the clearance and nominating process of all presidential appointments in the Federal Government.
Professor Czinkota is very grateful for the visit of Katja, a key decision maker in White House
appointments. While high ranking politicians and public servants can get a few minutes with Mrs. Bullock, we had her for a full hour.
Co-founder Transparency Intl and the Partnership for Transparency Fund
Frank Vogl is the co-founder of two leading international non-governmental organizations fighting corruption — Transparency International and the Partnership for Transparency. He teaches a graduate course on “Corruption, Conflict and Security” at Georgetown University; writes frequently on U.S. and international corruption for The Globalist; and, lectures extensively. Frank is also a specialist in international economics and finance with more than 45 years of experience in these fields.
Scholars typically spend their summers at interesting and learn-worthy organizations. For my summer this year such destination will be the University of Kent in Canterbury, UK. There I will participate in several events. I will be help coordinate a university-wide international business seminar: Global Business in a Dynamic Environment. In addition, I will be chairing the scientific council of the 1st International Doctoral Conference “Socializing Business Research: Connecting and Advancing Knowledge” at Kent Business School.
On 12th February 2017, according to google scholar, professor Czinkota has been mentioned more then 10,000 times in other author’s works. Among current business school faculty members, this score places him in the second place after professor Brad Jensen from Georgetown University. Professor Czinkota’s citation rankings on a global basis also reached a new record, ranking number one in Export Management and Export Promotion and number two in Trade Policy.
In academic fields, citation tracking has become increasingly recognized as a way to assess the impact of scholars. Google scholar, as one of the most influential citation tracking tools, tracks the number of times research work is cited and makes comparative analyses.
When I met Prof. Michael Czinkota in 2003, it had been less than 2 years since I had the privilege to establish the Liechtenstein Embassy in Washington. He immediately was very generous in offering to share his knowledge and experience. Since the field of economics is not my expertise, I was immensely grateful for his support in not only raising the profile of the Embassy but also helping me become acquainted with the many nuances and layers of the U.S. economy and its global impact. Since Prof. Czinkota was born and raised in Germany and was partly educated in an Austrian school very close to Liechtenstein, he is familiar with my country, with its history, its economic system as well as the trans-Atlantic cultural differences, therefore able to understand how the U.S. economy is viewed even from the perspective of a small country. Professor Czinkota further broadened his engagement with my country by teaching at the University of Liechtenstein.
