Expatriate opinion needed

Post Posted: Wed Jun 07, 2017 5:08 pm

Hello everyone,

My name is Gerard Stubbs, a student of Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK.

I am conducting a piece of research for my masters thesis on expatriate adjustment.

The aim of the research is to explore whether 'Cultural Distance' (how different the host country is to the expatriates home country) affects adjustment of expatriates.

In particular I will be researching self initiated expatriates who have relocated to the UK.

I realise your time is valuable and would greatly appreciate any expressions of interest to participate. This research will contribute to the management of expatriates and in particular female expatriates.

If you think this research may affect you, please feel free to contact me in the comments or by private message. If you would like to hear more about the research please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,
