Bloomfield College Professor Named Fulbright Scholar

Fulbright Scholar Dr. Anita Pasmantier

By Alicia Cook

Bloomfield College Professor of Finance, Dr. Anita Pasmantier, has been named a Fulbright Scholar.

The Fulbright Program is a prestigious international exchange initiative created in 1946 that awards grants to American scholars each year to teach or conduct research in the more than 125 participating nations throughout the world.

“I am honored to receive this Fulbright Scholar award,” said Dr. Pasmantier. “I am very appreciative of the support that I have received from the Bloomfield College faculty and administration during the application process.”

Dr. Anita Pasmantier holds a B.A. in Economics and French, an M.A. in International Economics, and a Ph.D. in International Finance, all from Fordham University.  Dr. Pasmantier’s dissertation was a study of the pricing of currency options, which she presented at the Financial Management Association (FMA) Conference.  She has published several scholarly articles in peer-reviewed journals and continues to present her research at conferences.
 
Dr. Pasmantier began her career in the business world as the Manager of Foreign Exchange at the corporate headquarters for PepsiCo, a Fortune 50 company.  After three years at PepsiCo, she accepted a position as the Manager of Foreign Exchange at the corporate headquarters for Sterling Drug Inc., a Fortune 200 company, where she worked for five years. During the years she was employed full time at both PepsiCo and Sterling Drug, Dr. Pasmantier worked on her Ph.D. degree at Fordham University.

After receiving her doctorate in 1988, she began her academic career by teaching one year as an Assistant Professor at her alma mater, Fordham University.  The following year, she accepted a position at Seton Hall University where she taught for six years, after which she taught for two years at Fairleigh Dickinson University before taking time off to raise her daughter Daniella. In 2008, she became an Associate Professor of Finance at the Business Division of Bloomfield College, and in 2016, she was promoted to Professor of Finance.

As a Fulbright scholar, Dr. Pasmantier will be teaching Advanced Corporate Finance at Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali Guido Carli (LUISS University) in Rome, Italy for the 2018 Spring semester.

“We are thrilled that a member of the faculty of Bloomfield College has been selected to receive the prestigious Fulbright Scholar Award. Our faculty do a tremendous job of teaching and mentoring students,” said Dr. Tresmaine Grimes, Vice President for Academic Affairs/Dean of Faculty and Bloomfield College’s liaison to the Fulbright Scholar program. “This award provides national and international recognition of our faculty and their achievements. Dr. Pasmantier will leave a lasting impression on her colleagues in Rome, and will return to Bloomfield College with a wealth of experiences that she will share with our students.”

Funded by the U.S. government, Fulbright Scholars are chosen by the presidentially appointed 12-member J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. Scholars are selected based on their leadership and academic merits and their abilities to teach, conduct research, and contribute to solutions for shared international concerns.

The Fulbright Program aims to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries, and it is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government.

As a grantee, Dr. Pasmantier will join the ranks of distinguished participants in the Program. Fulbright alumni have become heads of state, judges, ambassadors, cabinet ministers, CEOs, and university presidents, as well as leading journalists, artists, scientists, and teachers. They include 58 Nobel Laureates, 82 Pulitzer Prize winners, 31 MacArthur Fellows, 16 Presidential Medal of Freedom recipients, and thousands of leaders across the private, public and non-profit sectors. Since its inception in 1946, more than 370,000 “Fulbrighters” have participated in the Program.
