Quinlan School of Business Professor Dow Scott recently served as a Fulbright Specialist, consulting with Poland’s AGH University of Science and Technology on its Human Resources program. According to the school, the Fulbright specialist program “places distinguished U.S. faculty and professionals from various industries in short-term collaborative projects at eligible institutions in over 140 countries worldwide.”
Scott, who teaches various management courses at Loyola, recently discussed his reasons for traveling to Poland with Quinlan, outlined what he did there and explained what he accomplished overseas.
Scott was asked why Poland and why AGH University:
I was selected by AGH University through Assistant Professor of Human Resources Ewa Beck-Krala, who is a former student of mine. She applied through the university to have me come and help the faculty improve their research skills, develop a strong relationship with industry, and create a partnership with Loyola to teach a joint global human resources course.
He was then asked what he did while in Poland:
“First, I held a faculty seminar on how to conduct quality research on management topics related to human resources that could be accepted for publication by peer-reviewed management journals.
Second, I presented to the business alumni association and select university administration on how AGH—and specifically the business school—could strengthen its relationships with the business community. The key to this is creating a strong network that offers mentorship opportunities to former and current students throughout their careers.
After my presentation, representatives from the university expressed strong interest in creating centers of excellence, similar to those that we have here at Loyola, to highlight faculty efforts, leadership, research, and engage industry sponsorship.”
Lastly, Scott was asked how his work with AGH will benefit Quinlan students:
The joint study abroad program will be particularly valuable. Studying abroad in Poland will allow my students to observe and interact with different cultures, which is a key skill for global human resources professionals. My research with Professor Beck-Krala hopefully will make significant contributions to the field of management and will become part of my classes.
