CSU East Bay Professor Selected for Fulbright; Trip to Germany for Administrators Program

Donna Wiley, a management and finance professor at California State University, East Bay, has been selected for the Fulbright International Education Administrators Program in Germany.

Wiley, who is director of graduate programs for the College of Business and Economics, will spend about three weeks in October visiting the University of Reutlingen near Stuttgart in southwestern Germany. The Fulbright group she will travel with will also visit Poland, Berlin and other locations.

The Fulbright program is designed for senior university administrators or educators responsible for international education. Cal State East Bay has about nine or 10 students from Germany in its MBA program each year from Reutlingen University. Wiley said she hopes to make connections with other German universities during her trip.

Wiley also wants to increase her understanding of Germany's business education programs.

"The education system in Germany is changing because of the European Union," she said. "They are going to need to change their educational degrees to be more comparable to other European countries."

Wiley's professional specialties are human resources management and organizational behavior. Her research and consulting experience has been in the areas of performance appraisal, training and development, and issues concerning working women. A Berkeley resident, she is a partner in Green-Wiley Associates, a Bay Area human resources consulting firm.

The Fulbright programs were established in 1946 to promote understanding between the United States and other countries. The Council for International Exchange of Scholars, a private nonprofit, manages the program, acting as a matchmaker for international institutions and students, academics and other professionals looking to expand their global perspective.
