Bloomfield College Professor of Finance Named Fulbright Specialist

By Alicia Cook

Bloomfield College Professor of Finance, Dr. Anita Pasmantier, has been selected as a Fulbright Specialist. The Fulbright Specialist Program, part of the larger Fulbright Program, was established in 2001 by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). The program pairs highly qualified U.S. academics and professionals with host institutions, spanning over 150 countries, to share their expertise, strengthen institutional linkages, hone their skills, gain international experience, and learn about other cultures while building capacity at their overseas host institutions.

As a Fulbright Specialist, Dr. Pasmantier is currently listed on the Fulbright Specialist Roster where she will remain for a three-year term and is eligible to be matched with a host institution’s project abroad.

“I've had the pleasure of working with Dr. Pasmantier when I served on the College’s Board of Trustees,” said Dr. Maureen Grant, who joined the Board in 1999 and now serves as Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs. “Having her now as a colleague in my new position, I'm doubly delighted. She brings all her passion for students, for teaching, and for Bloomfield College to the fore and is a deeply valued member of our community of teachers and learners.”

The College previously reported that Dr. Pasmantier concluded her assignment as a Fulbright scholar in June 2018 where she taught Advanced Corporate Finance at Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali Guido Carli (LUISS University) in Rome, Italy for the 2018 Spring semester. 

“I had such a positive experience teaching at LUISS University that I was so sad when the semester ended and I had to leave my students and colleagues in Rome” said Dr. Pasmantier, who joined Bloomfield College in 2008 as Associate Professor of Finance. She was promoted to Professor of Finance in 2016. “The Fulbright program is an important factor in keeping positive relations between the US and other countries. That is when I came across the Fulbright Specialist Program and decided to apply.” 

Specialists are competitively selected to join the Fulbright Specialist Roster based on their knowledge, skill sets, and ability to make a significant contribution to projects overseas.

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, receiving her doctorate in 1988. She began her tenure in academia at her alma mater, then Seton Hall University where she taught for six years.
