Campus: CSU East Bay -- May 27, 2005
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
"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.
