Sheng Yang


Chair, Dr. Richard W. Lindholm Professor of Public Finance, and Associate Professor in Economics and Management

I joined the Department of Economics and Management in Fall 2011 as an Associate Professor, received my tenure in 2015, and have been chair of the department since Fall 2016. I am also faculty advisor of the Gustavus Finance Club, which I founded in May 2013. The courses I regularly teach include Business Finance, Managerial Finance, Investments, and International Trade and Finance. I received the Swenson Bunn Memorial Award for Teaching Excellence in 2013.

As an economist in the fields of Industrial Organization, Investments, and Applied Econometrics, my research has been mostly focused on the empirical analysis of strategic behavior and market dominance, capital market efficiency, and behavioral economics.  My current research is about investigating the short-run and long-run dynamics between exchange rates and stock prices and the path through which monetary policy shocks impact on these markets in small open economies.
