A 1989 graduate of Framingham State College with a bachelor's degree in economics, Dr. Andrew went on to earn a master's degree in economics in 1992 and a doctorate in economics in 2002, both from the University of Connecticut.
Dr. Andrew came to Juniata in 2001 from Babson College, where he worked as a visiting lecturer during the 2000-2001 academic year. From 1996 to 2000, he also was an instructor for individual economics courses offered at Babson College and Bentley College.
His teaching interests include International Economics, Investing, Financial Markets, International Political Economy, Microeconomics and Macroeconomics. Dr. Andrew's research focuses on investing strategies and teaching innovations.
Dr. Andrew became the Chair of the International Studies (IS) Department in 2002, and since then there has been a quadrupling in the number of students with IS POEs. In the summer of 2004, Dr. Andrew co-directed an NEH-funded seminar titled "The Role of Film in International Studies" along with Jim Roney, Russian professor and also a member of the International Studies faculty. The goal of the seminar was to help Juniata professors better understand film, and how to use film as a pedagogical tool. Dr. Andrew is now regularly integrates film and economics music videos into his Principles of Microeconomics course.
Dr. Andrew and Gabe Castro '12 won a Goodman Grant to research an investment strategy. Goodman Grants fund faculty/student collaborative research projects. Gabe Castro then went on to present or co-present this research at five different venues, including a very competitive poster presentation in DC that only accepted 8% of its applicants. Dr. Andrew counts this experience as one of the highlights of his career at Juniata.
In 2007, Dr. Andrew was promoted to tenured Associate Professor and in 2013 he was promoted to Full Professor.
Dr. Andrew is married to Susan Andrew and has one son, Cameron.
