JGITMThere are some pivotal lessons that one can learn from China. In my research with Mingfeng Tang (Southwestern University of Finance & Economics, China), Angathevar Baskaran (University of Malaya, Malaysia) and Yong Lu (Pennsylvania State University, USA), we discovered that the Technology Business Incubators (TBIs) in China are managed in a disctinct manner. The four Chinese TBIs that we evaluated were all not-for-profit organizations and their directors were appointment by local governments.

At the macro-policy level, the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) shapes the general guidelines and rules, such as entry and exit policies as well as incubator evaluation framework. Torch Program Office under the MOST organizes, develops, finances and guides China’s official incubator programs. Provincial, municipal, county and district S&T commissions are responsible for implementing the program and establishing incubators in their local jurisdiction. At the micro-management level, TBI management team follows the guidelines of local Science & Technology commissions and establishes detailed execution policies. The policies are in accordance with those made by upper government agencies.

ijbpmMy colleagues, Dr. Orthodoxia Kyriacou, Dr. Angathevar Baskaran and myself have been  working since last 2 years on a research project investigating the experiences and realities faced by women accountants in India. Gladly, our research paper has been finally accepted by a reputed scholarly refereed journal ‘International Journal of Business Performance Management’ (IJBPM), Inderscience Publications (ISSN online: 1741-5039 ; ISSN print: 1368-4892). More details about this journal can be found here.

Our study offers exploratory insights into this area, against the backdrop of the internationalisation and globalisation of accounting. The study involved 17 women accountants from four major commercial cities in India: Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. The results indicate that several practitioners experienced difficulties in certain areas of practice, whereas others reported that they did not experience any barriers to advancement.

What comes to your mind when you think about women accountants? What do you think is the role of accounting profession bodies in your country in empowering women?

Did you follow the recent news of NSEL crisis in India? Or are you a victim of it by any chance? A magazine named the Economic & Political Weekly (EPW) from India, invited my views on this crisis. Have you heard about EPW?

EPW_Logo
About EPW: The Economic & Political Weekly (EPW), established in 1949, is a highly reputed and leading magazine since 1949, published by Sameeksha Trust, Mumbai, India. Scholars don’t feel they’ve come of age unless they have published in the EPW — peers don’t take them seriously unless they have an EPW article in their name. Intellectuals across the social sciences like Amartya Sen, Jagdish Bhagwati, M.N. Srinivas and Andre Beteille have cut their academic teeth, publishing their works here. The government usually reacts to most newspaper stories and editorials, but the EPW is in another bracket altogether. Its editorials go verbatim into government reports (adapted from the source: Outlook magazine, 23 April, 2007).

EPW Cover PageArticle on NSEL in EPW: Will you be interested to read my personal views and analysis on this?

You may buy the hard-copy of the magazine “Economic & Political Weekly” from a book store nearby you. This article is published in issue dated 14th September 2013, Vol – XLVIII No. 37 (the cover page on the right).
