Lectures in the Republic of Moldova, Barcelona
LOCK HAVEN — Lock Haven University finance and economics professor, Boris Morozov, was given the opportunity to lecture in the Republic of Moldova and present during a conference in Barcelona before the start of the fall 2019 semester.
Morozov graduated from Academy of Economic Studies in Moldova in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in economics and he believes it is important to give back to the community.
“Academy of Economics in Republic of Moldova sparked my interest in social sciences. My lectures to Moldovan students are my way of giving back to that institution,” he said.
Morozov and John Nauright, dean of the Stephen Poorman College of Business, Information Systems and Human Services, at Lock Haven University, are working on an international collaboration agreement with the Academy of Economic Studies.
“We hope this collaborative agreement will enhance opportunities for students and faculties at both institutions,” he said.
During his week in Moldova, he worked on establishing relationships between Lock Haven University and the Academy of Economic Studies for possible future collaboration between the two institutions. He also led a series of presentations for graduate and undergraduate students of AES on the topic “Financial Condition Analysis of Private and Non-Profit Originations.”
While in Barcelona for several days, he presented his original research on the relationship between decentralization and economic growth at Association of Public Policy and Management (APPAM). He noted that the association is a highly competitive conference and presentations are double blindly peer-reviewed and must have original research presented.
Morozov said he likes to bring his research to his classroom at Lock Haven University whenever possible.
“It makes classes on finance and budgeting a lot more lively and enjoyable for students,” he said.
