This is an article my colleague Dr. Evariste Habiyakare and I wrote to Reputation Institute's annual conference Going Global in the Repuation Economy 2012.
Theoretical review is written by Evariste and the quantitative data is analysed and handled by me after I and my students in Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences had collected it during autumn 2011 and spring 2012
