Fellowship Gift Boosts DBA Program


Monica Forret '88, PhD

November 2015

A Doctoral Alumni Research Fellowship has been established by an anonymous donor with a gift of $50,000 and a plan to raise an additional $100,000 for the fellowship. The fellowship will support program enhancements for current students, greater program visibility and reach, as well as advance faculty research and teaching. The Doctor of Business Administration program was the first doctoral program established at St. Ambrose University in 1998. Graduates of the program have distinguished themselves in their careers in industry, academia, and beyond.

Monica Forret, PhD, has been named the inaugural Doctoral Alumni Research Fellow. Forret '88, a member of the College of Business faculty since 1997, served as director of the DBA program for many years. She conducts and publishes research in the areas of networking, mentoring, careers, job search processes, gender issues and work attitudes.

Prominent community leader Dick Kleine '13 DBA expressed his enthusiasm about the fellowship after his positive experience in the program and his belief in its importance to business enterprises. Kleine earned his doctorate after retiring from a near 40-year career as an engineer and corporate vice president of quality at Deere & Company.

To assist this effort, contact Ed Finn, associate vice president for advancement at or by calling 563/333-6289.
