Associate Professor of Finance

Brian Walkup, Ph.D.

“I love having the opportunity to interact with students and help them master topics that will be valuable throughout their careers. Having students follow up years later and describe situations where what they learned in my classroom helped them is a very satisfying feeling. I also enjoy the opportunity to research topics that I find interesting and feel will impact how we understand the decisions businesses make, as well as improve the classroom experience for my students.”
