New Program Director in the WHU MBA Program

Dr. Zeeshan Sultan succeeds Gerold Gnau

The MBA program at WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management has a new program director as of this July: Dr. Zeeshan Sultan. Together with Prof. Dr. Martin Fassnacht, Academic Director of the WHU MBA program, he will lead the MBA for managers with professional experience. Dr. Sultan succeeds Gerold Gnau, who has led the program since March 2017, and will now continue to pursue his career at the University of Cologne.

Zeeshan Sultan is already very familiar with the Business School and the program. Between 2006 and 2007, he himself completed his MBA at WHU. He then worked on his dissertation, which he also successfully completed at WHU in 2017. He previously studied at the University of Wollongong in Dubai.

Over the course of his career, Zeeshan Sultan has also gained extensive experience in establishing companies. His international experience and his own experience in the program make Zeeshan Sultan an ideal candidate for the position of Program Director of the WHU MBA program, as the participant structure of the program is also strongly international. WHU wishes Dr. Zeeshan Sultan an excellent start and looks forward to fruitful cooperation.
