The VPP is a two-week fellowship for professors of advertising, marketing, communications and the liberal arts. In 2012, 18 professors were hosted by advertising agencies in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City and Seattle. Whether a professor is placed with an agency, a marketing or media company depends upon his/her area of expertise. The number of placements in the VPP is contingent upon the number of companies willing to host a professor. Preference is given to professors with little or no industry experience and to those who have not already participated in the program. Note: Program is only offered to professors teaching in the United States.
