Nhu Phan (MGT ’12) was named a Fulbright scholar, a prestigious award sponsored by the U.S. government designed to encourage international educational exchange. Only about 1,500 of the nation’s graduating college seniors receive this honor annually.

The grant allows Phan to spend the next year teaching English at an elementary school in South Korea. She eventually plans to attend graduate school—ideally at Oxford—and envisions a career in diplomacy at the U.N.

“Business is an important tool in navigating today’s world,” says Phan. “With a business background, complemented by my arts and letters and peace studies education, I feel prepared to face the world with all its challenges and surprises.”

Phan is just the second College of Business student to be named as a Fulbright recipient; finance major Cassandra Melton received the award when she graduated in 2001.
