Associate Professor of Finance

Richard Lewin, Ph.D.

My aim is to provide my students with the tools to understand the world they are part of, so they are no longer just passive observers, but are able to develop a critical mindset and ultimately become actors, facilitators and initiators on an international stage. I try to show them that the skills sets they develop and hone in the classroom can be applied in whatever sector of society they may choose to work in; that quantitative financial skills are a prerequisite of our modern society which simply cannot be ignored.
