The visiting professors programme (VPP) is a product of strategic partnerships between the business community in western Sweden and the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg. In order to strengthen the quality and international competitiveness of the School, corporate donors are supporting a second 5-year programme to engage leading professors in the fields of business, economics and law from around the globe.
Typically, professors are recruited for three years and spend one
month per academic term at the School contributing to both teaching and research. Engagement with the visiting professors exposes faculty and students at the School to cutting edge research in a wide variety of fields.
The Visiting Professor Programme has been made possible thanks to generous contributions from the business community in West Sweden. The sponsors of the Visiting Professor Programme are:
The Richard C Malmsten Memorial Foundation
Formally under the leadership of the School’s Dean, the VPP has a steering committee including representatives of all departments Bertil Vilhelmson (Economy &Society), Patrik Ström (Business Administration), Peter Martinsson (Economics), Sara Stendahl (Law) as well as Olof Johansson Stenman (vice-dean), Ingela Palmgren (Head of External Relations) and Robin Biddulph (project coordinator).
