Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Werner G. Faix has been accepted as a member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts
The European Academy of Sciences and Arts welcomed 80 leading scientists as new members at an official ceremony at the University of Salzburg on March 2, 2019. Gaining membership of this transnational network of scientists, artists, and spiritual leaders is considered a high honor. This year, the honor was also bestowed upon Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Werner G. Faix, deacon of the faculty of Leadership & Management at Steinbeis University, where he is also professor of business and personnel management, and director of the School of International Business and Entrepreneurship (SIBE).
As an academic forum, the European Academy of Sciences and Arts takes an interdisciplinary approach to tackling a variety of key topics and issues, transcending different fields to develop potential solutions to these issues. It currently has around 2,000 members from all corners of the globe, including 32 Nobel Prize winners, politicians, spiritual leaders, and former pope Benedict XVI. It is not possible to apply to become a member of the academy. New members are nominated by a selection committee based on achievements in research, education, and society, and are selected by the academy’s senate. Becoming a member is therefore considered an honor and an acknowledgement of scientific and educational achievement.
“Naturally this is a tremendous honor and recognition not just for me personally but also for the scientific work and the education and degree programs of the School of International Business and Entrepreneurship as a whole,” says Werner G. Faix, clearly delighted with the award. SIBE is a business school of leadership and management belonging to Steinbeis University and has already received a number of awards for its international degree programs.
