Dr. Terminator, if you please.

Bestowing an honorary doctorate in business administration on Austrian-born Arnold Schwarzenegger, Imadec University in Vienna lauded his "life achievements" and the work he's done to promote Austria's economy.

Schwarzenegger, whose "Terminator" films helped cement his Hollywood fame, was thankful but unable to accept the degree in person, Austrian radio reported. It referred to an e-mail from the star citing security concerns in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Alluding to Schwarzenegger's modest film beginnings in bit parts in the 1970s, Imadec University President Christian Joksch praised him as "a living example of what a person starting from nothing can achieve."
