Saudi Arabia vs. American Business Case Study

… Moreover, "academic development rather than social development is of primary concern" (Chaney & Martin, 2012, p. 94).

Social Organization: In the U.S., people separate work from family, and would often choose work over family, when forced to make such choices (Chaney & Martin, 2012). The Saudi culture, on the other hand, places work below family. This explains why businesses, in this case, are mostly family affairs, and why nepotism is seen as an indicator of healthy business, rather than one of corruption (Chaney & Martin, 2012). Saudi people value collectivism; they prefer working with others to working individually. Americans, on the other hand, are often jealous of others' success, and love doing their activities alone, for their own benefit (Chaney & Martin, 2012).

Regardless of the reason a person migrated, the main concept here is that they left their country of origin and moved to another location. Many say that migration goes on to on economically build up a country and it significantly contributes to the GDP of both the countries. (Balbo 5) it should be noted that change of funds, services and economies is not the only thing that takes place when migration occurs. Seeing the altitude of diversity that we have today, it is believed that migration has created third diversity. (Balbo 7) it…. [read more]


Bridging Business Cultures Between Saudi Arabia and the Midwest of USA Term Paper

… Saudi/American Midwest Cultural Differences in Business

The increasing globalization of modern business means that it is now more important than it ever was before for business professionals to become more aware of the various customs and expectations of business partners from different parts of the world. In general, the greater the difference between the respective societies and cultures or between any two nations or regions, the greater the potential dangers of failing to learn about one another's culture before starting to do business.

As is the case in other parts of the Middle East, religion plays a much greater role on Saudi Arabian society than it does in American life. That is not to say that Americans are not religious; but in the United States,…. [read more]


Taking Solar Solutions to Saudi Arabia Business Proposal

… Saudi Solar

Solar Solutions does not presently have much international experience. In order to succeed in a foreign market like Saudi Arabia, it will need to significantly upgrade its international management capabilities. The company will need to not only ensure that its principals have international business skills, but that the company has a plan to help bring its product overseas. Initially, the overseas expansion is likely to rely on exporting, necessitating only a foreign partner, but eventually the company will want to have its own representation in the Gulf region, given how lucrative that market is expected to be.

There are many techniques for building the international capabilities within the organization. Recruiting is the easiest shortcut. Doing business in Saudi Arabia is challenging -- this…. [read more]


Saudi Arabian Stock Market Essay

… The middle part of this decade saw a vertiginous run-up in the TASI. This reflected a number of factors, but key among them was a huge influx of small first-time traders attracted by a number of under-priced IPOs. (Under-priced IPOs encourage investors to sell part of their existing holdings in order to raise capital to invest in the new issues, thereby fuelling volatility.) Between 2003 and its peak in February 2006 the index gained a staggering 700%, with market capitalization soaring to $800 billion -- around two-and-a-half times nominal GDP. At its peak, the Tadawul was the world's tenth largest stock market by value, despite having only 78 listed stocks, many with a limited free float." It is reported that there is no surprise in….

Saudi Arabia Is a Large, Mostly Desert Research Paper

… Saudi Arabia is a large, mostly desert country in the Middle East, occupying much of the Arabian Peninsula. Saudi Arabia is a middle income country if measured by per capita GDP, which is 55th in the world, just behind the Czech Republic. However, wealth distribution is a significant issue in Saudi Arabia, as most of the country's wealth derives from its oil reserves, and these are controlled by a small number of ruling elites. The country suffers from a high unemployment rate, especially among its youth (Morgan, 2011).

Geographically, Saudi Arabia is a vast country that is almost entirely desert, with very high temperatures most of the year, negligible surface water and vegetation (CIA World Factbook, 2011). The country relies on underground water sources, and…. [read more]

Second, Saudi Arabia has been blessed with one of the world's largest oil reserves on the planet, a situation which created a gross national product of…. [read more]

Saudi Culture Family and Authority Essay

… This is quite obviously changing in drastic and rapid ways ad land is devoted to oil production and as Saudi Arabia (and other neighboring countries) becoming increasingly urbanized -- while authority is becoming less centralized, opportunities are becoming more centralized in the metropolitan areas in the region, and this is causing fragmentations in traditional family systems as moving away from family becomes more common and power relationships and decisions making becomes more individualized and employer- rather than family-oriented (Al-Ahmadi 2011; Ali 1993).

The changing shape of the Saudi Arabian economy both during the past six decades and in more recent years specifically has led to significant changed in the role of authority and family on shaping individuals' choices and actions in the country. The extent…. [read more]

Academic Research in Saudi Arabia Term Paper

… The obstacle that arises in order to carry on some research is that the funding process to carry out some research is so complicated that discourages much of the young researchers. Moreover proper infrastructure is not available, since scientific research (as opposed to other academic researches) need s proper and well-developed infrastructure. Secondly, the heavy burden on teachers (which includes additional teaching hours and administrative duties) does not motivate the faculty members to carry on some research activities.

Another similar study has been done to analyze the research activities among faculty members of medical and health colleges in 2011. Over 38.6% faculty members have published their work in last two years. Lack of time, no research assistance, non-availability of funds for research and heavy load…. [read more]


Saudi Stock Market Term Paper

… ¶ … Saudi Arabian Stock Market

Measuring Consumer Confidence in the Saudi Stock Market?

The Saudi Arabian stock market is heavily dependent upon oil as a key to its survival. From 2001 to 2006 the Saudi stock market experiences incredible growth. In the last part of 2005 the price of oil outpaces the Stock Index. This caused a drastic drop in the Saudi stock market. There are many theories as to the reasons and effects of the fall.

Women's Rights in Saudi Arabia Thesis

… Sure, women will have the right to vote in 2015, but what happens until then? Saudi Arabian women still remain largely under the direction of the men in charge. In this month alone, a women was sentenced by the Saudi Arabian government to ten lashes in a public setting for violating a currently-instated driving ban for all women. However, instances such as this receive little to no media attention, and the reason is simple -- such behavior has become commonplace in Saudi Arabian culture, and it is uncertain if women's suffrage alone will do much to counter this.

Economical Situation in Saudi Arabia Thesis

… Saudi Arabia's economy has traditionally relied heavily on oil revenues, but in recent years that government has followed the lead of other Gulf nations in taking steps to diversify the economy. The economic plan incorporates several elements. Among them are improving education, ascension to the World Trade Organization and the development of "economic cities." These reforms are in their early stages, but the government, which exerts tight control over the economy, hopes that over time the nation will be able to use its oil wealth as a stepping stone to a sustainable economic strength, even beyond the point when oil revenues dry up.

The present economic system, however, remains heavily reliant on oil. Oil revenues account for roughly 45% of the nation's GDP of $467.6…. [read more]

E-Government and Accountability in Saudi Arabia

Area of Research:

With the relatively uniform cost of high-quality, dependable and fast internet provision in both public facilities such as libraries, cafes and print shops, and in private setting such as places of business and households large and small, the web is presenting itself as an intuitive means to providing the government and its public with more reliable access to one another. Current government initiatives and the statistical outcome of such initiatives are together suggesting that statewide utilization of the internet is at this early juncture serving as an increasingly effective way for the Saudi government to reach out to its publics. By using a strategy of electronic (e)-government, Saudi Arabia is beginning now to improve…. [read more]

Good leadership is required for democracy to exist in various countries. Last couple of years marked a turning point in politics and leadership in the Arab world (Heydemann, 2006). A revaluation of the Arab spring revealed that many people in Saudi Arabia asked for election to be applied for the Shura council members, which created more pressure on the government who tried to make it more effective without elections. While in Kuwait many ministers were called for investigation for many times which resulted in the collapse of the Omma council. In…. [read more]

Saudi Women's Role in Respect Interview

… Furthermore, the radical transformations and sacrifices required to transcend this contradiction are either undesirable or unbearable." (2004)

The work of Moghadam (2003) reports that the Muslim society holds that women are "different beings - different often meaning inferior in legal status and rights -- which strengthens social barriers to women's achievement. In the realm of education and employment, not only is it believed that women do not have the same interests as men and will therefore avoid men's activities, but also care is exercised to make sure they cannot prepare for roles considered inappropriate. Women's reproductive function or religious norms have been used to justify their segregation in public, their restriction to the home, and their lack of civil and legal rights."

Development of Health Management System in Saudi Arabia Research Proposal

… Healthcare in Saudi Arabia

Project Title: Development of Health Management Systems in Saudi Arabia

Geopolitical Overview

Within the global healthcare model there are various expressions of appropriateness of care. In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for instance, healthcare has always been the purview of the government, funded at the behest of the ruling family, designed for a predominately young or middle aged population, and certainly not designed for the increasing urbanization and economic improvements that oil and natural gas have brought to the region. In addition, changing demographics in the Kingdom make it necessary to rethink the model of healthcare.

A geopolitical and cultural background of the country and comparison with the region is first provided to engage the reader in the synergism between these…. [read more]


Obesity Among Adolescent Girls in Saudi Arabia Essay

… Adolescent Obesity in Saudi Arabia

Obesity in Saudi Adolescent Girls

Obesity is a serious health problem in any population, but it is of special concern in younger individuals. The longer a person is obese, the longer that person has potentially to suffer the negative health consequences of being overweight or obese. Thus when children or adolescents are obese, this condition must be considered seriously both by the individuals themselves (as well as by their families) and by health professionals. Given that obesity increases the health costs associated with treating an individual, the concern should be one that affects an even wider audience, that of public health officials,

One of the costs that every national government must contend with in the twenty-first century is that of…. [read more]


Developing a Maritime Policy for Saudi Arabia Term Paper

… ¶ … Rational Maritime Policy for Saudi Arabia

The Untapped Potential of Saudi Arabia's Maritime Resources

Saudi Arabia is not a nation whose fate has been historically associated with the oceans. Images conjured of Saudi Arabia will involve oil fields and vast deserts. At first blush, there seems little reason to even consider a maritime policy for the nation, let alone a rational and holistic one that incorporates information from many maritime interests and successfully coordinates policy decisions for all. This is a misconception. In fact, Saudi Arabia has an intimate and strategic relationship with two major oceanic routes: the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. As the importance of these routes is certain to grow in the coming years and decades, it is important…. [read more]

Over the last several decades, Saudi Arabia has been experience tremendous amounts of economic growth. Part of the reason for this, is because they have 20% of the world proven oil reserves. Yet, the sale of petroleum-based products is accounting for: 90% of Saudi Arabia's exports, 80% of their revenues and 45% of the nation's GDP growth. This is significant, because the marketing of crude-based products has improved the county's…. [read more]
