Establishment of the UNESCO Chair of Entrepreneurship and Intercultural Management

The idea to apply and initiate a UNESCO Chair for Entrepreneurship in an intercultural context was born in 2004 as a result of a collaboration between the Westphalian University of Applied Sciences and the European Centre for Higher Education (UNESCO-CEPES). In connection with the conception and implementation of concrete projects, in particular in Eastern Europe, Prof. Dr. Christine Volkmann was awarded the UNESCO Chair for "Entrepreneurship and Intercultural Management" in 2005. After changing to the Schumpeter School of Business and Economics at the University of Wuppertal in 2008, she was again awarded the UNESCO chair in 2010. The UNESCO Chair was last renewed in 2018.
