Jérôme Doutriaux Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

For more than thirty years, Jérôme Doutriaux has led a distinguished and devoted career at the Telfer School of Management. An active researcher, scholar, devoted teacher and diplomatic colleague, he was hired as an assistant professor in 1971. Since then, he has held almost every academic position available, including Director of the MBA program, Director for the Systems Science program and Engineering Management programs, Associate Dean, Research and Programs and Vice-Dean. A modest but driven man, he has never demanded more of anyone than he has of himself. Instrumental in developing relationships between the Telfer School of Management and business schools in Latvia and Peru, active in his local community, and international research community and a key player and advocate for the creation of the Ph.D. program at the Telfer School of Management, his dedication and hard work at the Telfer School of Management will continue to bear fruit for decades to come.


Generous with his time, knowledge and experiences, Jérôme first obtained two degrees in Engineering from l’Institut Catholique des Arts et Métiers and l’École Supérieure d'Électricité, in Paris. After which, he moved to the United States where he obtained his M.Sc in Electrical Engineering from Carnegie-Mellon, followed by his Ph.D. in Systems Science also from Carnegie-Mellon in 1972.


In 2005, the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa, in collaboration with friends and supporters of Dr. Jérôme Doutriaux, honoured his thirty-one year legacy and his contributions to education by establishing the Jérôme Doutriaux Scholarship at Canada’s University. 

Jérôme is a man of great integrity, ethics and compassion with a profound sense of service to others. This scholarship was created in his honour and to reward individuals who exhibit similar qualities.

                                 

The donors wish to thank the Government of Ontario who helped create this fund through their generous matching contribution.
