Interview with a Fulbright Professor

Jay Nathan is an American professor of management at Tobin College of Business at St. John’s University in New York. He spent two weeks in Pécs in the framework of the Fulbright Specialist Program. It was my pleasure to have a conversation with him about globalisation, success and travel. In addition, as he has a soft spot for Hungary, before leaving, he told me with a big smile that he would hopefully come back and would like to found a scholarship for students to have the opportunity to take part in exchange programmes between Hungary and the USA.
