Visiting Professors

Oesterreichische Nationalbank

Academic discourse regarding economic core questions is a major concern for the Austrian National Bank (Oesterreichische Nationalbank - OeNB) and the Faculty of Business, Economics and Statistics.
For this reason, on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the foundation of the OeNB, and the 650th anniversary of the foundation of the University of Vienna the “OeNB Anniversary Visiting Professorships” were established.

Every year since 2016 a visiting professor is invited to lecture about monetary policies and fiscal topics at the Faculty of Business, Economics and Statistics.

We would like to thank the Oesterreichische Nationalbank for financing this valuable international knowledge exchange.

He has not only distinguished himself as the Henry Kaufman Professor of Financial Institutions at Columbia Business School, Director of the Columbia Business School’s Programme for Financial Studies and the PFS Initiative on Finance and Growth in Emerging Markets but also as Professor at the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs.
