Bryan Foltice - Associate Professor of Finance

I began my post-collegiate career in finance as a Financial Representative and Facilitator at Fidelity Investments. After receiving an MBA in Business Administration, I took a role as a Sr. Analyst in the OTC Derivatives department at Deutsche Bank. In 2010, I was accepted as a doctoral student in behavioral finance at the University of Münster in Germany, enabling me to further my education in finance and pursue a career in academia.


In my time in academia, I have found great satisfaction in the pursuit of producing high quality research. My main areas of research involve retirement plan design, trading strategies, and financial decision-making. 

Additionally, I have achieved notoriety as one of the best teachers within the department producing top feedback and evaluations from students. My time in front of the classroom has been rewarding and an aspect of the job that I thoroughly enjoy.


My passion is to assist as many people with their finances as possible. In 2021, I launched Ascend Financial Wellness LLC in order to pursue this passion.
