Welcome to Luxembourg: Professor Lucjan Orlowski, Ph.D. & DBA Students

This week SHU Luxembourg welcomes Professor Lucjan T. Orlowski, Ph.D. to the Luxembourg campus. Professor Orlowski brings with him a group of seven students from the Doctor of Business Administration in Finance program at the US campus.

The new Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) in Finance was launched in September 2015 and  is the first doctoral program offered by the Jack Welch College of Business. The DBA in Finance is an applied research doctoral degree designed for finance executives and advanced business professionals to expand and deepen their knowledge and to acquire state-of-the-art qualifications for furthering their careers.‌

DBA students traveling to Luxembourg are part of the course FN908 Field Seminar II: European Financial Stability. The group has planned visits to the European Investment Bank (EIB), Banque centrale du Luxembourg (BCL), and the European Stability Mechanism (ESM); with special guest lectures from Olivia Saunders – Civil Society Officer at the EIB, Paul Mercier – Adviser to the Executive Board, European and Internal Coordination Unit at BCL, and Rolf Strauch, Member of the Management Board at the ESM. Their itinerary also includes two lectures by Dr. Alfred Steinherr, Ph.D. at the Chamber of Commerce.

Unlike the traditional Ph.D. model that prepares candidates for academic careers, the DBA program focuses on developing knowledge with direct global business applications and prepares graduates for executive careers in business and financial institutions, consulting firms, government agencies or academic careers that require an equivalent of a Ph.D. degree from an accredited institution.

The DBA in finance is student-focused, aligned with the participants’ interests and career aspirations,” says Professor Lucjan T. Orlowski, Director of the new DBA program. “It is intended to train high-level critical thinkers and analytical minds who can contribute to the challenges of a complex and dynamic global business world. Students will broaden their knowledge of finance and acquire up-to-date applied research and analytical skills necessary for advancing their careers at financial institutions, consulting firms, other business organizations, government agencies and potentially, in academia.

Prior to joining Sacred Heart University, Professor Orlowski taught at New York University and before that at the Karol Adamiecki University of Economics in Katowice, Poland.

He collaborates with a number of research institutes and universities around the world. Some of his current and past research affiliations include:  Research Professor at the Halle Institute for Economic Research in Halle, Germany; a Senior Fellow at the Center for Economic and Social Research (CASE) in Warsaw; a Research Fellow at the William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan; a Senior Fellow at the Center for European Integration Studies (ZEI) at the University of Bonn; and Research Professor at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) in Berlin. He has guest-lectured at the University of Rome III, the University of Notre Dame, the University of Warsaw, and the School for Modern Business Studies in Hungary.

Professor Orlowski has been advising several financial and government institutions in the United States and Europe. From 1998 to 2001 he served as a Member of the Macroeconomic Policy Council of Poland’s Ministry of Finance and from 2002 to 2006 as a Senior Adviser to the National Bank of Poland. He was a member of the U.S. Government Mission to Eastern Europe.

He is a member of Executive Board of Association for Comparative Economic Studies (ACES) and a member of the Advisory Council of CASE in Warsaw.  He served on the Advisory Board of the DRI-WEFA Group in Washington, D.C.

He serves on Editorial Boards of Comparative Economic Studies and Banks and Bank Systems. He is an Associate Editor of Emerging Markets Finance and Trade, a Regional Editor of Journal of Emerging Markets and a Guest Editor of Open Economies Review and Economic Systems.
