Paff to teach at Duy Tan University

Dr. Lolita Paff
Dr. Lolita Paff, associate professor of business and economics and coordinator of the Business degree program at Penn State Berks, will teach microeconomics and financial accounting at Duy Tan University in Vietnam during summer 2011. In total, four teams of two Penn State faculty members will travel to Duy Tan this summer.

Penn State Greater Allegheny officially launched the partnership between Penn State and Duy Tan University, located in Da Nang, Vietnam, in the summer of 2010. The purpose of the partnership is to encourage more and deeper linkages between the two universities; to increase the number of Vietnamese students matriculating in the United States and attending Penn State; and to promote educational programming necessary to provide Vietnamese students with the skills they will need to advance in today’s modern economy.

The train-the-trainer program in Business Administration and Accountancy is designed to assist Duy Tan University in curricular enhancement of its programs by exposing and training the Duy Tan faculty to incorporate innovative and interactive pedagogical and curricular strategies, which may be integrated into their curriculum.

According to the terms of this agreement, Penn State will train about 100 faculty members from Duy Tan University to deliver 24 business courses. This training will occur over the course of four years.
