About Me

 

Michael Ehrlich, PhD, had an international business career before joining NJIT’s School of Management as assistant professor of finance. Ehrlich’s research focuses on financial markets and institutions, with an emphasis on market failures.  His current interest has been the unintended consequences of financial market innovation with special attention to structured investment vehicles, the financial investment innovation which grew to more than $400 billion worldwide before collapsing in the 2007-2008 financial crisis. Journal of Corporate Accounting and Finance and The American Economist published his views on the structure of financial markets and foreign exchange risk. He spent his last Wall Street years at Bear Stearns as senior managing director of the emerging markets fixed income business.  Earlier stints included positions of increasing responsibility at Lehman Brothers Kuhn Loeb and Salomon Brothers, where he worked in the Government Arbitrage group with John Meriwether.  Upon leaving Wall Street, Ehrlich started FineStar Imaging LLC, a small technology company that specialized in document production and management.  He sold FineStar in 2007.  Today, along with teaching, Ehrlich participates in NJIT’s small business incubator program, the Enterprise Development Center (EDC). Ehrlich, who belongs to the New York Angels, works with start-up companies.
