Fulbright Chairs at WU
The Fulbright Program, named after US Senator James W. Fulbright (1905–1995), is one of the most well-known and renowned mobility programs for US scholars. The program’s objective is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Applicants are subject to a stringent selection process conducted by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars on behalf of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State.
WU has two Fulbright Chairs, the Fulbright-WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) Visiting Professor, assigned to a different WU department every year, and the Fulbright-Kathryn and Craig Hall Distinguished Chair for Entrepreneurship in Central Europe, assigned permanently to the Department of Strategy and Innovation.
In the 2018 summer semester, Garry Bruton from the Neeley School of Business at the Texas Christian University (Fulbright-Kathryn and Craig Hall Distinguished Chair for Entrepreneurship in Central Europe) and Stephanie Hoffer from Moritz College of Law at Ohio State University (Fulbright-WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) Visiting Professor) came to WU to teach and pursue their research.
