When global economic summits or international trade agreements are the top news of the day, Finance Professor Jeffrey Bergstrand often is a ready source of expertise for business journalists. Bergstrand, who also is the associate dean for Mendoza College Graduate Programs, has been quoted in stories in The Wall Street Journal, CNN Money and Forbes, among others. For his contributions, the University presented him with the 2013 Media Legend Award, an honor given annually to a faculty member who consistently brings attention to Notre Dame’s academic excellence through participation in media relations.
Bergstrand joined Mendoza more than 25 years ago. His research on international trade flows, free trade agreements, foreign direct investment, multinational firms and exchange rates has been published in more than 50 articles in academic journals and as chapters in books.
