Host institutions welcome scholars to teach courses, conduct research, carry out a combination of teaching and research activities, or conduct a professional project in the Business and Economics field.
For proposals that include a teaching component, full time local faculty are expected to teach up to 4 subjects per semester. However, host institutions are flexible with the number of subjects/hours for Fulbright Scholars.
For proposals that carry out a combination of teaching and research activities, there are no requirements for a teaching/research ratio as this depends on the interests of and agreement between the scholar and the host institution.
More information about teaching and/or research proposals available here.

Professional Projects may include visits to organizations in the applicant's field, practical experience in day-to-day operations, public lectures, or other appropriate professional activities.
