This research is in its second year of a part time Phd ; it is based on the premise that the gap in Irish and Indian national cultures is significant and is effecting levels of acculturation and ultimate student performance/award. The author also suggests that Irish HEIs could do more to optimise the level of acculturation and minimise the national cultural gap through better interventions. This purpose of this research is to assess the level of acculturation of Indian PG students on Business Masters programmes in Ireland in order to develop a model or theory in relation to national cultures and acculturation of students. It will examine the impact that gaps in national culture (& Institutionalism) have on the levels of academic acculturation of post graduate Indian business students in Irish HEIs (3 sectors)
