Babson College Finance Professor Michael Goldstein, the Donald P. Babson Professor of Applied Investments, has been appointed the next secretary/treasurer of the Financial Management Association (FMA).
The FMA is a global leader in developing and disseminating knowledge about financial decision-making. FMA’s mission is to broaden the common interests between academicians and practitioners; provide opportunities for professional interaction between and among academicians, practitioners, and students; promote the development and understanding of basic and applied research and of sound financial practices; and to enhance the quality of education in finance.
Goldstein, who is the faculty director of the Master of Science in Finance program at Babson, will begin his five-year term as FMA secretary/treasurer April 15. Goldstein also was named recently the editor of The Financial Review and is editor of Weather, Climate, and Society.
At Babson, Goldstein has taught the course Arctic Economics: Climate and Policy, which involves a mix of coursework, research, and excursions. For a little over two weeks, students studied at Nord University in Bodø, Norway, and were joined in the course with students and faculty from Nord and Brown University. Previously, Goldstein brought Babson students to Canada’s Northwest Territories to study ice roads used by long-haul truck drivers. Both trips were partially funded by two different U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) grants.
