Xiaoli Wang, PhD, Associate Professor of Finance at Marist College, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Finance.
Dr. Wang has held her current position at the School of Management at Marist College since 2011, after transitioning from the private sector in investment management. She was a partner of Hagin Investment Management from 2008 to 2015, and credits her success to the hard work she put in after attaining her PhD, as well as keeping up with the quick pace of change in the world. Dr. Wang takes the time to learn new technology and methodology, which have helped her get to where she is today. She received a 2014 Junior Faculty Research Award for her work in finance, and a 2008 Highly Commended Award from the Emerald Literati Network.
Originally from Xi’an, China, Dr. Wang studied economics with the Xi’an Jiaotong University to earn a MA, followed by a PhD in finance from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, in 2006. She joined Bear Stearns as an investment strategist from 2006 to 2007, and was a vice president of Bank of America Securities until 2008. From there, Dr. Wang took on the post of director of research and partner with Hagin Investment Management. Dr, Wang initially disliked the broad nature of economics when she studied it in school, and found it did not match with her detail-oriented personality. Finance was more closely focused and specific, and Dr. Wang enjoyed solving problems and seeing a direct outcome.
Dr. Wang holds a seat with the board of editors of several academic journals, and authored “Private Equity, Asset Allocation and Risk Perception: Entrepreneur Spirit and Asset Allocation From a Risk Perspective” in 2008. She is herself an author of ten peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Wang is also a member of the Eastern Financial Association and the Northeast Business Association. She currently teaches financial statement analysis, financial management, and corporate finance, and previously taught empirical finance and portfolio management.
