KENT, Ohio - Oct. 30, 2014 - PRLog -- The College of Business Administration’s faculty Jay Muthuswamy, Ph.D, Department of Finance; Arno Forst, Ph.D., Department of Accounting; Deborah Knapp, Ph.D., Department of Management and Information Systems; David Dumpe, Ph.D., Department of Finance and Mark Altieri, Department of Accounting received 2014 Faculty Recognition Awards at the University Teaching Council Conference on Friday, October 24.

The award is given to faculty members who have been nominated by Kent State University students as professors who have significantly impacted their lives academically.

"I feel honored to be able to make a difference in a student's life. We live in a difficult world and we need to be open to the world, not closed. My lectures try and make the student think,” Muthuswamy said.

Currently, Muthuswamy is a professor of finance and teaches International Business, Investments and International Finance Management. His areas of expertise include investments, high frequency algorithmic trading, derivatives pricing and asset pricing.

"I'm sure that all faculty have a natural desire to make a lasting impression on their students, or we would be doing something else,” Dumpe said. “To be publicly recognized by a student for having achieved that goal is both rewarding and inspiring.  It's what provides the motivation for tomorrow and beyond.”

Dumpe is a professor of finance, personal finance for non-finance majors, First Year Experience and serves as a monitor for finance internships. His areas of expertise include working capital management and healthcare financial management.

The recipients were acknowledged at a luncheon ceremony at the Kent Student Center where each honoree received a certificate along with their nomination form.
