WKO-Wien Visiting Professorship

The WKO-Wien Visiting Professorship was established in 2020 as a cooperation between the Austrian Economic Chambers Vienna and the University of Vienna. Within this Visiting Professorship, a scientist is invited to the Faculty of Business, Economics and Statistics, to engage in topics concerning monetary and capital market policy and teach one course in the visiting semester. He or she also contributes to the promotion of public discourse through participation in public events.

Due to Covid-19, the WKO-Wien Visititing Professorship in 2020 had to be cancelled.
