After teaching as an adjunct for Fordham’s Gabelli School of Business for two years, Dr. Michael Buckley joined the faculty of Fordham University in 2003. He’s a Senior Lecturer in Economics, and teaches courses such as Financial Analysis and Global Financial Markets, which are taken by many IPED students. Before joining Fordham, Dr. Buckley worked in the private sector for twenty-five years, gaining expertise in foreign exchange, internal risk, and emerging market lending.
In a recent conversation with Ms. Donna Odra (IPED ’12), Dr. Buckley discussed his time at Fordham. He described teaching with IPED as one of the many high points of his career at Fordham. In terms of what kept him here, he mentioned that the work never ceased to be interesting, as there’s always a fresh crop of students, and he could come up with new courses, or improve the one’s he already teaches. Although he will of course miss his colleagues and his students (not least of which IPED students) as he enters retirement, Dr. Buckley is very much looking forward to spending more time with his twenty-month-old grandson in Brooklyn, birding with his wife, traveling, and reading. He certainly won’t miss giving make-up exams and grading!
Join us in thanking Dr. Buckley for his significant contributions to Fordham University and in particular the IPED program. We will be celebrating Dr. Buckley on Tuesday, May 3, at 7:30pm in the Economics Conference Room, Dealy Hall.
