“Over his nearly 30 years at Marquette, Dr. Daniels has demonstrated not only strong, progressive leadership in the College of Business Administration, but also a dedication to the university’s mission, vision and values,” Acting Provost Ah Yun said. “He is the ideal individual to help the college build on its momentum and advance its vision of becoming a ‘destination business school.’”
“I have called the College of Business Administration home for nearly my entire career, and I’m honored to step in as acting Keyes Dean at this key moment in our future,” Daniels said. “The college is fortunate to have such a dedicated and visionary faculty and staff — together we will continue to dream big and achieve great things.”
In addition to serving as chair of the Economics Department — which serves students in the College of Business Administration and the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences — Daniels is co-director of the Center for Applied Economics. He currently serves on the University Financial Planning and Review Committee, the Dean’s Executive Council for the College of Business Administration, and the Dean’s Advisory Council for the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences.

He is widely published in economics, finance and political science, and his research has appeared in outlets such as the Journal of Money, Credit, and Banking; Journal of International Money and Finance; Journal of Monetary Economics / Carnegie Rochester Conference Series on Public Policy; and International Tax and Public Finance, and he has been reviewed in the Wall Street Journal and Foreign Policy. He teaches international currency markets and international trade and is the recipient of university-wide teaching awards from Indiana University and Marquette University.
