Visiting Professor Programme


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 have, since 2009, supported two 5-year programme to engage leading professors in the fields of business, economics and law from around the globe. In the future the School aims to establish a fund to support a permanent VPP, and in the meantime a bridging VPP3 has been established with four new professors appointed from 1st January 2019.

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:

Elof Hansson Foundation
Volvo Group
Stena AB
Elanders AB
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), Henrik Agndal (Business Administration), Peter Martinsson (Economics), Eva-Maria Svensson (Law) as well as Ola Olsson (vice-dean), Ingela Palmgren (Head of External Relations) and Robin Biddulph (project coordinator).
