Prof. Dr. Karl Inderfurth, who held the FEM Chair of Business Administration/Production and Logistics position from 1994 until his retirement in 2013, has now received a special honor: On the occasion of the annual Verbands der Hochschullehrer für Betriebswirtschaft e. V. (Association of University Teachers for Business Administration) conference, held in Rostock in mid-June, he was awarded the VHB Honorary Membership. The parties involved in the decision - the Management Board, Advisory Council, and Annual General Meeting of the VHB - acknowledged his exceptional merits and decades of outstanding achievements in business research. Prof. Inderfurth is thus joining - as the first business economist of an 'Eastern Faculty' - a distinguished list of renowned names among the discipline.
In a spontaneous e-mail to the faculty, Prof. Inderfurth commented: "This surprised me as much as it moved me! I want to say thank you very, very much for this really nice gesture, which further strengthens my connection to the faculty.  The excellent working and research conditions at the Magdeburg Faculty have certainly contributed to the fact that I was able to develop myself in such a way that I received such an award." And the FWW, dear Mr. Inderfurth, is immensely proud to have someone of your character in its ranks!
