Students' personal identity and competence to live and cooperate with different people is the goal what forms the core of any education. Developing students' social capital should be an essential part of educational efforts. In our comparative study Czech, Hungarian, Polish and Slovakian business students' notions of cooperation were investigated with the Associative Group Analytic Method (Szalay, 1967). The concept of cooperation was connected to preferences for cooperation among students of the four nations. Results showed similarities and characteristics differences both in terms of what it means to cooperate and to whom each group prefers and not prefers to cooperate and why.
