About Marc Schaffer

Marc teaches courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level with an emphasis on macroeconomics. Marc brings real-world experience to his classes given his prior work experience with a financial fund company and an institutional investment manager. Marc seeks to emphasize the use of applied analysis and data to bring content to life, most notably in his courses, solving social and economic problems with data and data visualization. He also teaches short-term study abroad courses such as International Economics in the European Union, which allows students to meet with central banks in Europe along with business leaders and policymakers to better understand economics in the real world.

Marc is very active in the local and regional community in his role as the director of the Center for Business & Economic Analysis (CBEA) at St. Norbert College. Marc works with a team of SNC students to serve as consultants in a project-oriented fashion for local businesses, nonprofits and government agencies. As director of the CBEA, he regularly gives presentations to the regional business community on the state of the economy and frequently appears in local media to provide commentary on current economic events. Marc’s service and efforts in the community led him to receive the Bishop Morneau Community Service Award in 2018 from SNC.

Marc’s primary research area is focused on monetary and financial economics with an emphasis on the behavior of financial institutions, about which he has published several articles in journals including Managerial Finance and Applied Economics. Additionally, Marc has published on the relationship between firm risk behavior and executive compensation across industries in the Review of Accounting and Finance. Marc has also worked with colleagues to publish a teaching case study in the Case Journal, among other publications.
