Allen D. Engle, Sr. selected for the prestigious Foundation Professorship effective 2013-2015.

Allen D. Engle, Sr. (B.B.A. 1978, M.B.A. 1980, EKU, Ph.D. 1990, UK) Professor of Management in the School of Business at Eastern Kentucky University, was selected for the prestigious Foundation Professorship effective 2013-2015. This is the highest honor an EKU faculty member can receive and recognizes excellence in the classroom and dedication to students.

The Society of Foundation Professors was formed in 1987 by the EKU Foundation to recognize "creative, self-motivated exemplars of the ideal college professor." All full-time tenured faculty are eligible for the two-year professorship which comes with an extra salary stipend of $5,000 a year. The selection is based on the University's standard criteria for promotion, tenure and merit. Allen was recognized for his achievement at the Spring Commencement ceremonies at EKU on Saturday, May 11, at 9:00 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

In February of this year the 6th edition of his bestselling textbook “International Human Resource Management” was published by Cengage Publishing.  Coauthored with Peter J. Dowling of LaTrobe University in Australia and Marion Festing at ESCP-Berlin, previous editions of this text have been published in a Canadian edition, a German language edition and a Mandarin edition.

In May Allen travelled to Berlin and taught some 45 international students in the Masters in European Business Program at the Ecole Superior de Commerce a Paris (ESCP-Europe). The oldest business school in the world (founded in 1819), ESCP-Europe has campuses in Paris, London, Madrid, Berlin and Torino. The class was composed of graduate students from some 10 countries from around the world.  Engle holds a three year appointment as a Visiting Professor at the Berlin campus. The Berlin campus of ESCP Europe is located in the totally internally retrofitted and updated Wilhelmine Kaiserina's children's hospital complex of buildings, restored to its 19th century exterior and once a part of the extensive palace complex of the Schloss Charlottenberg in western Berlin.

While in Europe he flew to Scotland to give an invited lecture on issues related to global performance management systems for multinational enterprises to the faculty in the Department of Organisational Studies at the University of Edinburgh Business School.
