Janet Bartholow

  • Finance Professor
  • McColl School of Business

Professor Bartholow has been teaching finance at the collegiate level since 2007. She relates the course academic goals to her employment experiences through the use of personal stories from when she was a Customer Service Representative, an Account Coordinator and a Senior Business Financial Analyst.

She has taught a broad array of finance courses including: Corporate Finance, International Finance, Investments, Financial Policy, and Securities & Fixed Income Analysis. While the tools of the trade are a necessary part of each course, her passion is in motivating students to seek their own passion. She believes in promoting the long-term reward gained by taking education more seriously as an individual investment in oneself, as opposed to a right of passage gained by earning a degree.  She challenges students to develop a longer-term focus of learning for personal growth beyond achieving employment in their field of concentration to exploring how their unique value can contribute to our society.

She recently co-authored a decision case in Journal of Financial Education and will be graduating soon with her Ph.D. from Kent State University.  Her area of research is primarily insider trading but her interests span from local to international financial markets, from investment products to performance.  

She moved with her husband and three children from Ohio in 2015. She loves spending time with her family, attending a local church, playing cards, and walking her dog, Cooper.
