Develop Great People and
Organizations for Future


The international research project is run as an international initiative between three universities from 3 countries:

  • West University of Timisoara, Romania,
  • Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University, Turkey– with the support of Management, Entrepreneurship and Leadership Research and Application Center and
  • Warsaw University of Technology, Faculty of Management, Poland.

With an innovator design, the international research and scholarly experience named DEVELOP GREAT PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS FOR FUTURE – INTERNATIONAL JOINT RESEARCH EXPERIENCE PROJECT will help the undergraduate and graduate students to improve their research skills and competencies, offering a rewarding international young research experience.



The globalized business and innovative environment create a growing need for employees that can operate in a variety of socio-economic and cultural conditions capable of handling the complexities that arise while working in an international context.

As educators and researchers, we firmly believe that the advancement of HRM education and research experience to a new level of excellence can only be achieved through the collaborative effort of international education and research.

The Center for Sustainable Development Faculty of Economics, Business and Development European University of Tirana, Albania

The Center for Sustainable Development was established in 2018, based on the EUT Statute and law 80/2015 “On higher education and scientific research in the institutions of higher education in the Republic of Albania”. It is the integral part of the Faculty of  Economics, Business and Development and assists the Faculty’s research activities. The center aims to transform itself into a hub of expertise in the field of  sustainable development and  to become a Centre of Excellence for publishing high-quality research with a potentially important contribution in social and economic development through knowledge transfer beyond the academic community towards public and private institutions as well as interest groups.

Management, Entrepreneurship and Leadership Research and Application Center Istanbul Zaim University, Turkey

The Rectorate and Senate of Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University has decided to establish a “Management, Entrepreneurship and Leadership Application and Research Center” within the University. Our university, which is rapidly growing among the universities in our country with its management, academic and administrative staff, campus, quality of education, academic researches and publications, has established a new center in the field of social sciences in addition to its existing research centers. The reason for the establishment of this center is to fill the gap in management, leadership and entrepreneurship which is the biggest necessity today, to provide practical education along with theoretical to our students, to carry out researches, to carry out academic studies and to make scientific publications. Leadership is the function of leading, guiding and heading a group, a collective, la company an organization, a community, a society, a country in conjunction with the field of management (within management area). Includes various fields such as company, institution, social community, political community, state, country starting from the family. Humans own nature also have close interest in management and leadership qualities. As a result, success or failure will bring good or bad, positive or negative picture in terms of leadership. Moreover our University’s name Zaim which means Leader is meaningful in that sense. Entrepreneurship is a beneficial activity which allows an individual to strand out in economics, to have the freedom of doing business. It is an activity that brings added value to the welfare and happiness of people and society it’s also encouraged by our belief. The future of a country depends on its economic power and its economic power depends on how successful it is in entrepreneurship. It is impossible for an economic model structure and based on public sector employment only to be competitive and sustainable for the country. This fact has been noticed with many examples in recent history of the world. The way to manufacture, to trade, to export, to employ, contestability, development is through positive and successful entrepreneurship. For this reason, it is of utmost importance that it is encouraged and supported by private sector, universities and decision-making public and political authorities. “The Future is Youth and Entrepreneurship.” Taking all these reasons and objectives into account, a Research and Implementation Center has been established to deal with “Management, Leadership and Entrepreneurship” in İZÜ and we strongly believe that beneficial studies will be done for our students, our university and our country.
