Visiting Professors Support College of Business Internationalization Efforts
This summer, the College of Business (COB) will offer students the opportunity to
take advantage of the expertise and unique perspective of two visiting professors
from Germany and Spain. Matthias Fifka ( far right), the Dr. Jergen Meyer Endowed
Chair for International Business Ethics and Sustainability at Cologne Business School,
and David Sanz Bas, professor of economics at the Universidad Catlica de vila, will
each teach a class to COB students as part of the COB's internationalization initiative.
"Now that the College of Business has received accreditation from the international
Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), we are pursuing initiatives
geared towards giving UD more exposure internationally and providing our students
with a well-rounded education with a global perspective," said Robert Scherer, dean
of the College of Business.
Fifka, whose expertise is in business ethics and sustainability, will teach Business
& Society. Fifka has taught and studied in the U.S. and is looking forward to visiting
Texas for the first time and teaching at a small liberal arts college. Sanz Bas, whose
expertise is in international economics, will teach Foundations of Economics.
"As part of our internationalization initiatives within the College of Business, we
are working to foster partnerships with universities abroad. We look forward to having
visiting professors with us each summer to teach graduate business courses within
their areas of expertise and participate in this unique exchange of cultures," said
Andrea Gold, enrollment manager in the COB.
