German Academic Association for Business Research
The "German Academic Association for Business Research“ (VHB) was established in 1921. The overall aim of the Association is to foster the development of Business Administration and Management as an academic discipline in university education and research; moreover, it is to mediate the contacts between academia and practice with similar national and international organizations. As one of its major tasks the VHB supports younger researchers by way of focused workshops, awards and travel stipends. The establishment and maintenance of a modern internet-based communication system facilitates the academic exchange and interaction among the 1300 members.
