Dr. Nancy J. Scannell, Associate Professor of Business Administration, was invited to serve as a Fulbright Specialist at Irkutsk State University (ISU) in Russia. Thanks to her hard work and support, a select cohort of students from ISU distinguished themselves by each earning a micro-credential* in Financial Literacy, issued by the University of Illinois System. Nancy posited that among the most satisfying outcomes for an educator, in the aftermath of delivering a business workshop is to witness the emergence of commercial start-ups led by student entrepreneurs. ISU students did not disappoint; Nancy was delighted to share the exciting news that two of her workshop graduates teamed up to deliver tourism services in their region.
