The Advertising Educational Foundation invites you to apply to the Visiting Professor Program (VPP)
The VPP is a seven-day fellowship for professors of advertising, marketing, communications and the liberal arts. It allows professors and industry to develop a mutually beneficial relationship and to share research. The VPP gives professors a greater understanding of the industry while host companies have an opportunity to develop closer ties to academia. Professors witness first-hand the day-to-day operations of a company, while bringing academic expertise to that company. In addition, host companies tap into research and expertise from an academic POV as well as establishing a pipeline to students for internships and jobs. Application Deadline: February 17, 2017.
