James Fairfield-Sonn, dean of the University of Hartford’s Barney School of Business and a professor of management, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to participate in a two-week cultural exchange program in Germany in October. The award will allow Fairfield-Sonn to study and observe educational developments and international education in the Federal Republic of Germany.
“I am delighted to receive this award,” says Fairfield-Sonn. “It will create more opportunities for the Barney School of Business to develop international partnerships in support of its mission to develop leaders and decision makers who are globally aware and socially responsible.”
