The Fulbright Program, the U.S. Government’s flagship international exchange program, is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and people of other countries. It promotes leadership development through learning and international cooperation.
The Fulbright Program operates in more than 155 countries worldwide and has provided participants -- chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential -- with the opportunity to study, teach or conduct research in each others’ countries and exchange ideas.

Fulbright Scholar 2013
Associate Professor of Finance Allan A. Zebedee has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to visit the University of Roehampton in London, England, for the fall 2013 semester. While in London, Zebedee will conduct research examining corporate scandals and the interplay between government regulations, corporate governance, and executive behavior, with a particular focus on differences between the United States and the United Kingdom.
“Despite the increased globalization of our financial markets, large corporate scandals surrounding executive compensation have for the most part been limited to the U.S. financial markets,” says Zebedee.
