Member of the EQUIS Committee
WU Rector Edeltraud Hanappi-Egger was appointed to the EQUIS Committee in August 2021. The EQUIS Committee is made up of highly regarded experts who hold top-level management positions at universities and have profound experience in the field of management education. The EQUIS Committee supports and advises EFMD and the EQUIS director on the further development and implementation of the accreditation system for business schools and carries out preliminary assessments to check if universities qualify as candidates for initial accreditation.
Michael Lang, WU’s Vice-Rector for Research and Human Resources, was named the new chair of the National University Federation of Universities Austria in January 2021. This makes him the highest-ranking employer representative for Austrian universities.
