MBA (Michigan State University), Ph.D. (Indiana University), CFA
Michael H. Anderson received his Bachelor of Arts in Economics and MBA in Finance from Michigan State University. He received a PhD in Finance from Indiana University after a stint at Carnegie Mellon University. He also holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation. Currently, he is a Full Professor at the Charlton College of Business. Prior to becoming a teacher, he worked at a small manufacturing firm, rising to the position of Controller. At UMD, Professor Anderson has taught Corporate Finance, Financial Institutions and Investments at both the undergraduate and MBA levels. His research interests include financial institutions, corporate finance, and game theory. His most recent research has been on subprime financing. The intent of that work is to determine who is using these contracts--such things as rent-to-own, payday loans and pawnbroking--and why and how they are used in order to make a positive contribution to the policy debate about how best to help these disadvantaged and/or disenfranchised consumers. His work has appeared in such academic journals as the Journal of Economics and Business, Journal of Consumer Affairs, and Review of Quantitative Finance and Accounting as well as the popular press and various government forums.
