Professor F. J. Wehage publishes book on German business culture

WEHAGEMuskingum University Professor of German Dr. Franz-Joseph Wehage has just published Geschäftsdeutsch: An Introduction to German Business Culture.

The book, written with Dr. Gudrun Clay of Metropolitan State College of Denver,  introduces college students to the language of business German. Its goal is to increase students’ knowledge of and interest in Germany’s national and global economy.

The language, topics and skill-building exercises in the book offer preparation for students who, after two years of college-level German, plan to pursue careers in international business. At the same time, the materials are appropriate for students, such as German majors or minors, who have chosen business German as an elective course.

Dr. Wehage joined the Muskingum University faculty in 1991.  He earned his bachelor’s master’s and doctoral degrees from the State University of New York – Albany.  In 2002, he received the university’s William Rainey Harper Award for Outstanding Scholarship and the Outstanding Foreign Language Technology Award from the Ohio Foreign Language Association. 

The book is published by Focus Publishing/R. Pullins Company, and is available at
