“Everyone truly wants you to succeed”

"The most valuable lesson I learned at LCC is that people are the most valuable asset in every organization. Having talked to many alumni, they always said that people are what creates the real LCC experience, and now looking back, I couldn’t agree more. It is our amazing staff and faculty who share common values and help us grow not only as professionals but also individuals, and it is the students who later become your second family. It has taught me to care about each person I work or interact with. I believe that LCC is the place where you can create the experience you want. You can always find the right people to help you implement even the craziest idea or project and also find the resources to get it done. Appreciate that at LCC everyone truly wants you to succeed."

Nowadays economics: Circular Economy Approach in Business


McArthur foundation more than two decades ago started spreading news that linear economy is bringing concerns and whole world should think about how to join two important things into one – economics and ecology.The Circular Economy is viewed as a feasible way to achieve sustainable development by closing the flow of materials and energy without switching off the global economy. The idea of it is to replace production with sufficiency: reuse what you can, recycle what cannot be reused, repair what is broken, remanufacture what cannot be repaired.Circular Economy requires a more creative approach towards business, because companies have to overthink their processes of production and sometimes even services. As we can see, businesses are not in a hurry to start changing their business model towards circular approach. For instance, the European Green Deal has to be accomplished in part by 2030 and fully by 2050, so enterprises feel like they have a lot of time to do those changes and generate new business ideas. On the other hand, this non-willingness to change in some sectors is related to preferences to keep profits the same and last with existing profitability as long as possible. The possibility to fasten business changes is the pressure from existing customers and governmental requirements for more sustainable and circular business activities.Education of consumers and the same time businesses might be very helpful. The circular economy aims to redefine traditional linear economic models (where resources are extracted, transformed into products, consumed, and then discarded as waste) by promoting the continual use, recycling, and regeneration of resources. The economic return of the circular economy refers to the financial benefits and opportunities that arise from adopting and implementing circular economy principles and practices. This approach presents several economic advantages:¾     Cost savings. Adopting circular economy practices can lead to cost savings throughout the production and consumption cycle. By reusing materials and products, businesses can reduce their reliance on virgin resources and avoid the expenses associated with extraction, processing, and disposal. Additionally, designing products for durability and recyclability can reduce maintenance and replacement costs.¾     (Environmental) cost savings. The circular economy helps mitigate the environmental costs associated with resource extraction, production, and waste generation.¾     Job creation. Transitioning to a circular economy can lead to the creation of new employment opportunities. The shift towards recycling, remanufacturing, and repair activities requires skilled labour and specialized expertise. Additionally, the development of innovative technologies and systems to support circular practices can stimulate job growth in sectors such as renewable energy, waste management, and sustainable transportation.¾     Development of new scientific programs/courses aimed to prepare qualified/skilled workforce to operate in circular economy.¾     New business opportunities. The circular economy fosters innovation and the development of new business models. Companies can create value by offering products and services that enable resource efficiency, such as product leasing, sharing platforms, and waste management solutions. These new avenues for revenue generation can contribute to economic growth and job creation.¾     Improved competitiveness and market access. Embracing circular economy principles can enhance the competitiveness of businesses and economies. As sustainability becomes increasingly important to consumers, companies that adopt circular practices can differentiate themselves in the market and attract environmentally conscious customers. Moreover, the circular economy can open up new export opportunities by meeting the growing demand for sustainable products and services globally.¾     Resource security. Traditional linear economic models are dependent on finite resources, and their extraction often involves geopolitical risks and price volatility. By embracing circular economy principles, countries and businesses can reduce their reliance on scarce resources, promote resource diversification, and enhance their resilience to supply chain disruptions.Overall, the economic return of the circular economy arises from its ability to generate cost savings, foster innovation, create jobs, enhance resource security, improve business competitiveness, and reduce environmental impacts, etc. By transitioning to a circular economic model, societies can achieve both economic prosperity and environmental sustainability, creating a win-win situation for businesses, individuals, and the planet.Author: Henrika Ruginė, PhD Candidate, MA IM Instructor at LCC International UniversityAdditional notes on Henrika RuginėHenrika teaches sustainability in the MA IM course NGO Leadership, Philanthropy, and Sustainability.

NGOs Provide Crucial Support to Society


I recently received information from a 2022 graduate of the Master’s in International Management program at LCC International University, Emad Al-Qasm, who is now working for an INGO in Ukraine. With Emad’s permission, I shared his news in a LinkedIn post, and I am sharing it in this newsletter for the benefit of those who do not read LinkedIn posts.“My name is Emad Al-Qasm, humanitarian aid worker. I am an alumnus of LCC International University, MA IM, with a Master of Arts degree in International Management, 2022. This program helped advance my career by helping me learn different skills and techniques in business management, leadership, and understanding economics.Now, I am in Ukraine to help the war-affected people. I am working as Head of Project for livelihood and economic recovery with Deutsche Welthungerhilfe INGO in the east and west of Ukraine. Through our projects, we aim to increase the resilience of war-affected people and institutions to conflict-related economic and social stresses by supporting small and medium entrepreneurs (SMEs), microbusinesses, technical and vocational educational training (TVET), and TVET institutions, and also helping to increase access to labor market systems and services.”Emad and many of our students have experienced unrest and war in their home countries, just as Ukraine is currently experiencing. I am tremendously moved by the desire of Emad and other students to help those who are now experiencing similar situations that are traumatic and will affect the rest of their lives. Emad and these students are “paying it forward” which is a critical part of recovery for the giver as well as the receiver.NGOs play a crucial role in helping people and countries recover. Although NGOs have existed for decades, many people are not familiar with the term NGO. Questions I have received recently are “What is an NGO?” - What’s the role of an NGO?” - “How is an NGO different from other types of organizations?”First of all, a little about the definition of NGOs and the history of NGOs can also explain the purpose, the role of NGOs. The term NGO, nongovernmental organization, was first used by the United Nations in 1945, although these types of organizations that supported social issues existed in the 13th century with Chinese humanitarian associations. In the 14th and 15th  centuries, Islamic communities provided social welfare functions, and when colonialism began to spread in the 16th and 17th centuries, secret societies and missionary organizations began to support social issues (Tutumlu & Muradyan, 2022).An NGO is usually established by individuals who are concerned with the public, social, or political good of a nation or the world, to provide services or to promote a public policy (Folger, 2023). For example, some provide emergency relief, international health education, address human rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, economic development, environmental advocacy, disaster preparation. Many have been established to address the effects of war such as needed medical care or other types of supplies, caring for children. An NGO might be able to get certain types of funding from a government, however, governments are not involved in an NGO’s decisions or operations.There are a few NGO classifications, International NGO (INGO) and Environmental NGO (ENGO). Some INGO names that you will recognize are Amnesty International, BRAC International, CARE International, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, Save the Children.  The World Wildlife Fund and Greenpeace are ENGOs and also INGOs (Karns, 2023).  There are many small NGOs that operate in a single country and provide critical support to people.In future newsletters, we will discuss more about NGOs and their operations.Author: Donna Falloon, PhD, MA IM Program Director at LCC International UniversityReferences:Karns, M.
