Being a Good Steward of Money—Yours and Your Company’s
In honor of Financial Literacy Month, Associate Professor of Finance Brian Walkup ’06MBA discusses why financial literacy matters for everyone.
Brian Walkup ’06MBA’s love of finance sprung from a love of math.
“I started out as a math major because it was a subject that came naturally to me and I enjoyed in high school,” the associate professor of finance said. “But I lost interest in higher-level courses because it was all theory, and I didn’t see the application of what I was learning. I was lucky to have an advisor who suggested I consider finance because he thought I’d enjoy the quantitative nature of it and the ability to see how it applies to real decision-making.”
