McDougall Selected for Fulbright Scholarship

October, 2008

“This is an absolutely thrilling opportunity,” says Professor of Business Duncan McDougall of his Fulbright Scholarship, which will take him to the classrooms and boardrooms of Romania this fall.

McDougall, who has been teaching in MBA programs for more than 30 years and serves on the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs’ graduate programs accrediting board, will teach courses at Babes-Bolyai University, help strengthen the university’s international business program, and advise faculty and administrators on building an MBA degree program.

“It will be a refreshing, stimulating experience that will provide me with a more global point of view,” says McDougall, who will also act as a liaison between U.S. and Romanian businesses that want to develop relationships.

Provost Julie Bernier notes that both Plymouth State and Babes-Bolyai University, who have enjoyed a student and faculty exchange partnership since 2004, will benefit from McDougall’s Fulbright experience. “This is a wonderful occasion for Dr. McDougall to share his expertise and to bring back a wealth of experience and knowledge to our students,” she says. “It is also a great opportunity for Plymouth State University and Babes-Bolyai University to further develop our partnership.”
