Dr. Agourram earned his DBA at Université de Sherbrooke. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Sciences and Mathematics from Rhode Island College (USA) in 1989, a Master’s degree in Software Engineering from National University (USA) in 1990, and a Master’s degree in Management Development from the EuroArab Management School (Spain) in 1995. Before joining Bishop’s University in July 2001, Dr. Agourram taught at McGill University, École des Hautes Études Commerciales de Montréal, and Université du Québec à Montréal. Dr. Agourram has also worked in business organizations for nine years, including five years as the dean of a private business school, two years as human resources director, and two years as a software engineer. Dr. Agourram is a regular member of the Groupe de recherche en Geobusiness de l’Université de Sherbrooke.

Research

Dr. Agourram’s current research is concerned with information systems success in multicultural environments. His upcoming article will publish the findings of his dissertation, which searched for information systems success in four national cultures: France, Germany, Canada, and China. His research interests include information systems implementation success and long-term success in different national cultures, electronic commerce success models in different cultures, and the deployment of global information technology. Dr. Agourram is undertaking the design process of a research study that will complement his dissertation research. The purpose of the study is to develop information systems success models in Arab culture.

He has been involved in a joint research programme sponsored by the European Union and the Arab League. Twenty-five researchers from European and Arab countries developed a multicultural MBA programme which is now offered in about 20 European and Arab countries. The programme was based on the tutored-self study approach, with heavy use of internet technology and private networks.

Professor Agourram was also involved in the largest leadership research study to have been sponsored and conducted by the Wharton Business School. The research involves more than 170 researchers from all around the world. The purpose of the GLOBE (Global Leadership Organizational Behaviour Effectiveness) project is to uncover the “etic” and “emic” categories of leadership. Partial results have been published in different journals, including Leadership Quarterly Journal.

Other research roles:

Sylvie Béquet earned her D.E.S.C.A.F. (Diplôme d’Études Supérieures Comptables, Administratives et Financières) at l’École Supérieure de Commerce et d’Administration des Entreprises, membre du réseau des Grandes Écoles françaises, France), as well as receiving her M.Sc. in Finance at Université de Sherbrooke.

Research

Her research interests include chaos theory, mathematical modeling, as well as the study of non-linear dynamic systems applied to finance. She has deep interest in the history of the capital markets. Also she is a critical assessor of misuse and abuses of classical econometrics to applied finance. She is the current faculty advisor on the SEED Portfolio – a real-life portfolio entirely managed by senior finance students in the Williams School of Business and Economics.

RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

Professor Béquet’s current research is concerned with the development of forecasting models ranging from pure fundamentals (a blend of financial and economic variables) to pure technical models (long-run memory processes as originally thought of, formulated and introduced by Benoît Mandelbrot) to predict over the short, medium and long-term the behaviour of North American stocks and bonds markets. Also, forecasting models are developed to uncover medium and long-term trends in the economic sectors and sub-sectors of both American and Canadian stock markets. The development of these forecasting models is aimed at improving portfolio managers’ asset-mix and sector rotation decisions. Furthermore, the blending of various forecasting models allows to assess the underlying downside risk in a portfolio context.

FUNDING

Professor Béquet’s work is externally funded by the research department of the National Bank Financials. With NBF she has been involved in a research collaborative effort since 1995. At National Bank Financials, she belongs to a research team of four people.

Research

My research interests include the identification of multicultural managerial competencies, namely as they apply to international leadership, to the management of multicultural teams as well as to virtual teams contexts.

I’m also interested in international management education, both at the undergraduate and the graduate levels. Along with a group of Bishop’s students, I am researching cutting-edge content and methods to prepare students for work on an international scale.

Dr. Marcantoni has been a member of the Department of Psychology since 2006. He is presently teaching courses in several areas including Neuropsychology and Methodology. His research interests revolve around the neural structures underlying the temporal limitations of visual attention. When attention must be allocated to two successive (time) relevant stimuli there is often a cost in processing measured as an increase in response time or in error rate. A series of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) experiments performed by Dr. Marcantoni with young adults identified a group of cortical regions that may be responsible for the control of visual attention across time. Current avenues of research examine how these networks are modified through factors such as stress, aging, and by neurological damage (i.e. Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease).

Impact of Base Domain Knowledge on Consumer Comprehension:
The Case of the Emerging Ice Cider Industry

Dr. Robert Palmer in collaboration with Dr. Reid

The impact of “Base Domain Knowledge” on consumer comprehension of new products has been investigated for durable goods, however, has not been investigated in the context of sensorial marketing. Additionally, the impact of base domain knowledge on expectations/satisfaction in a new context has not been observed. The purpose of this study will be to fill these gaps, by focusing on whether experience with one alcohol category (ice wine) might influence adoption category for a brand new alcohol category (ice cider).

He teaches courses in international business and international marketing.

Research

Dr. Rutihinda’s research focuses on entrepreneurship and globalisation of small and medium size enterprises (SMEs). He is currently working on two different projects looking respectively at the Eastern Townships and Tanzania.

The purpose of the study funded by the Eastern Townships Research Centre is to explore the challenges and costs involved in developing foreign markets for SMEs in the Eastern Townships, and to investigate what factors may explain any observed differences in their export performances. The specific location of the Eastern Townships with their proximity to the large US market provides them a better access and more interaction with the United States businesses. Their unique bilingual population also adds an advantage of overcoming cultural barriers associated with international business. It is expected that the unique geographic characteristics of the Eastern Townships will influence the export marketing behaviour of SMEs located in the Eastern Townships.

Dr. Rutihinda has been awarded funding by the Senate Research Committee for his project on the role of foreign direct investment on SMEs in the pre-emerging economy of Tanzania. The study assumes that the impact of foreign direct investment on SMEs will be influenced by four main factors: foreign firm characteristics, characteristics of host country’s SMEs, the institutional environment, and the economic environment. So far research has been done on the more affluent developing countries such as those in Eastern Europe, South Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Very little has been done on the countries at the lowest ranks in economic development. By providing empirical evidences on Tanzania, one of the least developed countries in the world, this study will provide avenues for radically different findings that may contributes towards filling up the current theoretical and empirical gap. By providing empirical evidence and constructs on the interaction processes between international firms and SMEs, this study will benefit policy makers in both developed and developing countries as well as business managers of transnational firms and SMEs.

Research

Corporate Governance

Dr. Valsan’s past research interests dealt with capital structure theory and its applications to economies in transition. He also studied the economics of art auctions, comparing auction results in Canada and the United States, and clarifying the relationship between pre-auction estimates and realized hammer prices.

Currently, Dr. Valsan researches corporate governance. More specifically, he is investigating the ownership of the publicly held Canadian corporation listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Since corporate ownership in Canada is more concentrated that in the United States, his research will hopefully shed more light on the relationship between ownership entrenchment and operating efficiency.
