Michael H. Anderson 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 UMassD, Professor Anderson has taught Corporate Finance, Financial Institutions and Investments at both the undergraduate and MBA levels. 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.
