Czech Republic, Brno: September 25 - October 1, 2006

(Brno International Conference on Applied Business Research)

The conference was organized by the Mendel University in Brno.

Mendel University of Agriculture and Forestry in Brno can pride itself on the longest history of agriculture and forestry studies on the Czech lands. It was established in 1919. Its constitution completed the long-term effort to institute an agricultural university in Moravia, which has, from time immemorial, held an important post among the countries with the most developed agricultures in the central Europe. Since its establishment it has undergone a range of structural as well as curricular changes.

Mendel University in Brno is divided into four faculties. Faculty of Agronomy, Faculty of Forestry and Wood Technology and Faculty of Business and Economics are all located in Brno. Faculty of Horticulture is then located in Lednice. The total number of students enrolled at all four faculties is almost 8,500. The original education programme drew on the university's two main spheres of interest: agriculture and forestry. Nevertheless, over the time the programme significantly expanded. Steadily, new study programmes were introduced and consequently modified so that they better suited the needs of the university graduates.

The solution of the science and research tasks complies with the long-lasting prognosis and the scientific aims of the university and of the individual faculties, and covers the agricultural, forest, biological, economic and technical sciences. It is an open circle of scientific activities used in institutional research, in tenders of grant agencies, in research centers and in international research programmes. The research programme of MUAF in Brno follows on general level the trends in contemporary development of the fundamental scientific fields, particularly biology, and their application in agricultural, forest, horticultural and economic sciences. In practice it means intended management of biological processes, effective use of non-renewable natural sources and production of renewable ones while sustaining the present standard of multifunctional agriculture and business. The main interest lies largely in the quality and safety of the agricultural products, and foods in particular, in the context of ever-growing competition on the world agricultural market. In compliance with the outcomes of the common agricultural policy of EU, the university defines as its priority the topics concerning multifunctional agriculture and forestry and the implications of their production and outside production functions when shaping the landscape, and developing the countryside.

In May 1997 UIBE was put on the list of "Project 211" universities, a governmental program aimed at turning about 100 Chinese universities into exceptionally high quality academic institutions in the new century. In 2000, UIBE has become one of the state universities under the leadership of the Ministry of Education, and in June of the same year it merged with China Institute of Finance and has since then become one of the leaders in the studies of business and finance.

UIBE consists of over 20 academic schools, departments and research centers. Among the over 30 bachelor, master and doctoral programs that UIBE offers, International Trade, International Economic Law, English Language and International Business Management have been designated as key programs under "Project 211".

n December 1989, UIBE became the first university in China that had a Board of Trustees composed of members from the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation, Bank of China, People's Insurance Company of China, Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce, etc. Li Lanqing, the former Vice-Premier of the State Council, took the chair for its first session, and Wu Yi, Vice-Premier of the State Council, chaired the Board for its second session.

At present, UIBE has a total enrollment of more than 20,000 students coming from 30 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities in China as well as over 30 countries and regions in the world. The university invites dozens of foreign academic professionals to teach or lecture every year in addition to its 1,400 teaching and administrative staff members who carry out its regular curricula.

UIBE is one of the first universities in China to have initiated academic exchanges with foreign academic institutions. Currently UIBE has exchange programs with over 100 universities and institutes in more than 30 countries or regions among the world.

In the past few decades UIBE has been proud of the performance of its graduates, many of them now playing active roles in promoting business and economic cooperation between China and other countries.
