My Education in Ukraine
Matiash, Ludmila
Business Communication Quarterly, v70 n3 p341-345 2007
After the disintegration of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, Ukraine and other Newly Independent States were invaded by armies of consultants from Western donor organizations. Development agencies like the World Bank, the United States Agency for International Development, Tacis, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and the Peace Corps introduced technical assistance programs, promising to turn the glorious collective past into a competitive economic future. Few of these consultants were educators, but all of them were introducing business concepts and teaching their clients to work with new tools in a new paradigm. In this article, the author describes the challenges that she encountered as a business education consultant to an online multilingual e-magazine dedicated to business management in Kyiv, Ukraine. She says that with the help of student interns, she was able to develop the vocabulary for new business concepts and set the standards for business management practices in Ukraine.
