October 2022 – Drew University and Drew’s Caspersen School of Graduate Studies are pleased to welcome Hamed Yousefi as assistant professor of finance.
Yousefi, who joined the Drew community at the beginning of the fall 2022 semester, is teaching finance courses at both the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) and Caspersen’s Master of Science in Finance (MFin) program.
Most recently, Yousefi was a visiting assistant professor of finance at Strome College of Business, Old Dominion University, where he was a Bloomberg Lab instructor and the instructor of record for courses in Financial Management, Contemporary Business, and Financial Decision-Making.
He earned an MBA in Finance from the University of Economic Sciences in Tehran, Iran, and an MA in Economics and PhD in Finance from Old Dominion University.
“As I have been known to say, ‘the most valuable asset we have in our life is time,’” said Yousefi. “I’m thrilled to be spending this time of my career at Drew, preparing CLA and MFin students for careers in the fascinating and ever-changing field of finance.”
A member of the American Finance Association and Financial Management Association, Yousefi’s research interests include asset pricing, fintech, and market friction.
“Professor Yousefi really has such a diverse set of research interests,” said Master of Science in Finance Program Director Steve Firestone. “He has published in a wide range of finance, accounting, and marketing journals. His interdisciplinary business research is one reason that he is such an asset to Drew students as they think about honors thesis and independent study opportunities.”
On a personal level, Yousefi enjoys fishing, camping, and is a member of the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club. He also plays soccer and tennis and is seeking a local tennis partner!
