Teaching and mentoring students is the first priority for Albion's Economics and Management faculty. Because of Albion's small class sizes, we get to know our students well.
Recent scholarly research by faculty addresses such topics as fighting botnets with economic uncertainty, ethical reasoning in management decision making, networking to develop a professional identity, equity market liberalization, cost-effectiveness of video conferencing to diagnose stroke patients in rural areas, and decision making principles of labor arbitrators in employment grievance cases.
Two Albion E&M professors have received prestigious fellowships from the National Science Foundation, and two have received Fulbright grants.
