About

Axel Beer (born in Vienna in 1969) received his Magister and Doctoral degrees in 1991 and 1995, respectively, both from the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration. He also dabbled in a few other academic fields (such as translation and law), but has stayed true to his alma mater. He has always focused on the U. S. and American English in general, and claims to be the Department's resident Disney expert in particular (as evidenced, for example, by his doctoral dissertation on Corporate Communication and Corporate Language at Walt Disney World).In addition to his own teaching - including, among other things, EBCIII, a long-running lecture on Life in Britain and the U.S., together with Dr. Herles (who is responsible for the British part), and various communication courses at a master's level, Dr. Beer is also the Academic Director for Languages at the Department of Foreign Language Business Communication as well as Head of the Institute for English Business Communication.

Research Interests

Axel Beer's main research areas include corporate communication, corporate language, digital communication, U.S. studies, and Disney (see above). He is also the academic advisor for the WU's exchange programs with the University of Wisconsin - Madison as well as the University of Miami and Boston College.
