Doran Appointed to Panel on Collegiate Achievement
Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Professor Lynn Doran has been appointed a 2015 faculty panelist for the Measuring College Learning (MCL) Project. In an effort to shed light on questions of academic achievement and assessment, the MCL brings together faculty from six fields of study — biology, business, communication, economics, history, and sociology — to reach consensus on how schools can effectively measure their students’ achievement. She is one of 15 scholars appointed to the panel on business education this year.
Doran, who is a professor of the practice specializing in finance, has been a faculty member at Georgetown McDonough since 1998 and is the faculty advisor to the Financial Management Association, an organization for aspiring financial managers in the undergraduate program. In 2010, she received Georgetown University’s Dorothy Brown Award, given each year to the professor who is voted as the best professor by undergraduates.
