Journal of East European Management Studies, 2013, vol. 18, issue 4, 442-462

Abstract: This article introduces the joint research project titled “GLOBE Student” with its focus on seven Central and Eastern European countries at its current stage. The project’s overall aim is to investigate cultural ideals and practices as well as leadership prototypes of future managers, based on the assumption that today’s students will likely form the future management in business organisations. In this article we describe the theoretical background of our project and develop a model for the analysis and interpretation of the data collected. We critically evaluate the original project’s theoretical concepts and also discuss their appropriateness and shortcomings for the analysis and explanation of students’ leadership prototypes.
