Inter­na­tional Asso­cia­tion of Cros­s-­Cul­tural Compe­tence and Manage­ment

This asso­cia­tion was formed to esta­blish a network of rese­ar­chers and prac­ti­tio­ners inte­rested in and concerned with cros­s-­cul­tural subjects.

The Inter­na­tional Asso­cia­tion of Cros­s-­Cul­tural Compe­tence and Manage­ment is an academic forum for experts in all fields of rese­arch who take an inte­rest in and are concerned with cros­s-­cul­tural topics. The project was initiated by the Inter­na­tional Studies Centre at the Vienna Univer­sity of Econo­mics and Busi­ness Admi­nis­tra­tion. The IACCM network is desi­gned to offer its parti­ci­pants the oppor­tu­nity to provide infor­ma­tion and exch­ange views, thereby faci­li­ta­ting and inten­si­fying inter­na­tional co-ope­ra­tion. Regu­larly orga­nized confe­rences and the publi­ca­tion of a refe­reed journal (JCCM) revised by an inter­na­tional edito­rial board shall guarantee addi­tional infor­ma­tion exch­ange at a high academic level.

The overall inten­tion of this asso­cia­tion is to develop well-­founded expla­na­tions for the cros­s-­cul­tural factors that show growing import­ance in an incre­a­singly inter­na­tio­na­lized world, which hope­fully will help to esta­blish cros­s-­cul­tural compe­tence and manage­ment as a widely reco­gnized field of rese­arch.

General aspects of the asso­cia­tion

The import­ance of inter­cul­tural co-ope­ra­tion gets crucial in a world of globa­liza­tion beyond conti­nuous inter­na­tio­na­liza­tion of produc­tion and markets. In addi­tion to manage­ment capa­bi­li­ties inter­cul­tural compe­tence of mana­gers is ever more important, both being key quali­ties for optimal cros­s-border allo­ca­tion of produc­tion factors.

The aims of the asso­cia­tion

Setting up an inter­na­tional network of experts in the field of cros­s-­cul­tural compe­tence opens the possi­bi­lity for co-or­di­nated know-how transfer and aims at brin­ging toge­ther those who work on this issue in order to promote and develop this subject collec­tively. The emphasis is laid on the orga­niza­tion of inter­na­tional work­shops and confe­rences which will certainly be favourable for personal connec­tions among the experts and might lead to new links between them as well as to the crea­tion of common rese­arch projects.

Further­more it is an aim to faci­li­tate the submis­sion of project propo­sals, on the one side because the network faci­li­tates finding suitable project part­ners, on the other because the exis­tence of a conso­li­dated network will in a sense be an encou­ra­ging argu­ment with respect to rese­arch funds.

Edito­rial Board & the Journal (Euro­pean Journal of Cros­s-­Cul­tural Compe­tence and Manage­ment)

A number of well-­re­spected scho­lars in the field of cros­s-­cul­tural compe­tence and manage­ment and its foun­ding and supporting sciences are serving on the Edito­rial Board of IACCM and as reviewers and advi­sors for IACCMs scho­larly publi­ca­tion - the Euro­pean Journal of Cros­s-­Cul­tural Compe­tence and Manage­ment (EJCCM). EJCCM is a 2008 relaunch of the former Inter­na­tional Journal of Cros­s-­Cul­tural Compe­tence and Manage­ment.
