About Paul Bursik

Paul Bursik has been a member of the St. Norbert College faculty since 1990. He teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in all areas of finance: corporate finance, investments, personal finance, and financial markets and institutions.

Bursik served as the director of business administration at St. Norbert for many years, including the formative time for the Schneider School of Business & Economics. He has held several endowed chairs in the business department. Bursik has served in several capacities to lend his expertise to the St. Norbert College community in the areas of salary, benefits and monitoring of the retirement plan. He is a recipient of the Leonard Ledvina Award for Excellence in Teaching as well as the Bishop Robert F. Morneau Community Service Award.

He is a long-time, active member of the Northeast Wisconsin Chapter of Financial Executives International. He also has been a member of the American Finance Association, the Financial Management Association and the Midwest Finance Association.

Scholarship and research interests

Bursik’s research focuses on behavioral finance and sports economics, his interests being influenced by his graduate program that included pioneers in both areas. Behavioral economists explore cases where individuals and businesses make decisions that are at odds with standard theory, and the divergences can be explained by the often-flawed ways that humans make decisions. His work is published in both regional and national journals including the Journal of Finance & Accounting, the Journal of Business & Behavioral Sciences, the Midwest Review of Finance & Insurance, the Journal of Quantitative Analysis in Sports, the Nine Journal of Baseball History & Culture, and the Journal of Sports Economics. He authored a chapter entitled “Behavioral Economics in the NFL” that appears in “The Economics of the National Football League: The State of the Art.”
