"I am quite pleased to have received this very special honor,” said Albers. The association announced the award at this year’s conference, which it held from May 27-29 in Vienna.
Almost all of the 2,200 university teachers in Germany, Austria and the German-language region of Switzerland belong to the VHB. The association has granted Albers this honor for proven academic excellence and merit for his contribution to the association’s development.
A member of the VHB since 1982, Albers has held various high-ranking functions in the association. He was a member of the VHB advisory board, chairman of the Marketing Commission, editor-in-chief of the association’s academic newspaper “Business Research,” and the association’s chairman from 2007-2008.
