Strengthens quality and international competitiveness
The Visiting Professor Programme is part of the School of Business, Economics and Law's strategy to strengthen the international profile and competitiveness by increasing the proportion of international researchers within the faculty, and to build deeper relationships with a number of reputable universities and business schools around the world.
The visiting professors contribute in many different ways, at all departments, and in both research and education. On the research side, many have been involved in organising international conferences. They have established new collaborative projects and have written academic articles together with researchers at the School. Visiting professors have also contributed to both teaching and supervision of doctoral students, and also to designing courses, and teaching at the master's level.
The program has also proved to be an asset in the School' collaboration with business and industry. Guest professors have contributed to the School's Executive MBA programme, they have held public lectures and participated in tailor-made seminars and workshops for the School of Business's partner companies.
