Professor Fred Campano, Economics Professor, Statistician, and Consultant at Fordham University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in economics.
Prof. Campano became involved in his profession while at Stanford University in 1965. He was working at the Stanford Research Institute on the Vietnam War with one of his friends. This friend had returned to California from working at the United Nations (UN). Prof. Campano jokingly told him to get him a job there, but the friend took him seriously and put his name in at the personnel department. He then received a letter to come to the annual meeting of the American Economic Association in San Francisco. There, two economists interviewed Prof. Campano and they were interested in his work on simulation with the Vietnam War. They wanted to use it for peace gaming, so he was hired. Before embarking on his career path, Professor Campano matriculated at Stanford University. He received a Bachelor of Science in mathematics in 1963 and a Master of Science in statistics in 1966.
Professor Campano’s career highlight is being lucky with intellectual people in the field at the Stanford Research Institute and the United Nations (UN). He learned how to program a computer during a time when computers were still new, which later helped him complete his work in simulations. He joined the Stanford Research Institute in 1964, as a mathematician, where he remained until 1967. He then joined the United Nations as a senior economic affairs officer, where he stayed until 1997. During that time, he also became involved in teaching. In 1980, he joined Fordham University and remains with the university until this day. He is currently a senior lecturer with the university and has previously been a clinical associate professor of economics, adjunct professor, and lecturer. As a testament to his success, Professor Campano received a Bennie Merenti Award for Service in 2020. He is also listed in the 61st edition of Who’s Who in America.
