Office Number: 


Paul T. McGurr PhD, has had a long, and at least in his opinion, distinguished career in both business and academics. After graduating from John Carroll University and earning his CPA certificate, he worked for Ernst and Ernst (now Ernst and Young) in Cleveland, Denver and the Netherlands offices. He then worked for a number of retail companies in senior accounting/financial positions. He then changed directions and entered academia completing his MBA from the University of Indianapolis and his PhD from Purdue University. His academic career has been as diverse as was his business career. In the United States, he has taught at Purdue North Central, Ashland University (this is his return to Ashland), and Fort Lewis College. Internationally, he has taught for Northcentral University in China, Vietnam, and Cambodia and for Jönköping University in Sweden. His academic administrative positions have included Interim Dean of the School of Business Administration at Fort Lewis College and President of Bristol University, a small for-profit business school in Anaheim California. He is excited to be back at the College of Business and Economics at Ashland University.
