Florence Mauchant M'85When Florence Mauchant came to IUP in 1984 on an exchange program through the Institut Commercial de Nancy (ICN) in Nancy, France, she had a very limited knowledge of IUP.

Florence Mauchant was born and raised in France, where she earned an MBA from the Institute Commercial de Nancy. While interning in Germany and Singapore, she wished to gain additional international experience and was accepted into the MBA program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. The decision to come to Indiana changed her life, and she credits IUP with giving her an exceptional education in an environment that was nurturing and encouraging. Her experiences with the friendly residents of Indiana, committed faculty members, and colleagues who became life-long friends shaped her commitment and dedication to IUP today. She is an active member of the IUP alumni organization in New York City and a 2012 recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award.

Ms. Mauchant is a chartered financial analyst (CFA) and a member of the CFA Institute, where she volunteers as a grader for the CFA exam.
