Statements.

“A scholar’s quest often requires sojourns in locales and communities of practice that can inspire and ignite us to challenge, stretch and enrich our ways of thinking. JKU has been that place for me since the late 1990s – I consider my visits to JKU an 'intellectual pilgrimage'. JKU has been a critical part of my journey and I’ve grown as a researcher and teacher because of my time here. I’m delighted to be a part of JKU’s extended community.”

Prof. A. R. Elangovan
3M National Teaching Fellow Director, International Programs Gustavson School of Business University of Victoria Canada


“I would not want to miss my international research collaboration with colleagues at JKU. Together we explore fundamental questions about student learning in multinational teams and international business context. The research is relevant, applied, practical, and above all fascinating and engaging. Our collaboration across countries is intellectually stimulating and enriching. I have very fond memories of teaching at JKU, where the students are engaged and committed to their own learning. It has been a real pleasure teaching in this context.“

Tine Köhler, PhD, Senior Lecturer in International Management, University of Melbourne, Australia


“I have been visiting JKU every year for more than five years, and always look forward to it. A vibrant community of scholars, great students, and interesting discussions. I am particularly impressed with the faculty's close relationships with the local business community.“
