Jim Janke

If you are a Finance major, chances are you will or have had Dr. James Janke. In addition to teaching all of the Finance classes at some point or another in his career, Dr. Janke also teaches Entrepreneurship, Statistics, and Economics. Not only does Janke have a MBA in Finance, he also has a BS and PhD in Chemistry.

Reading and writing are extensive parts to all of Dr. Janke's classes. In his Entrepreneurship class, students create a major report modeling all that they have learned throughout the semester. The reports come directly from a student's head, so no special formatting is needed. A significant portion on exams is dedicated to well written answers.

Students in business majors should also become familiar and use financial jargon. The Journal of Finance and The Journal of Finance Education are great tools to help you get acquainted with the words professionals use. Online company web sites and the Wall Street Journal online are also valuable tools to use.

Janke believes that all Finance majors should have excellent communication skills. He even has a link on his homepage dedicated to that topic (insert link here). The use of standard English is crucial when talking to clients or perspective employers.

No matter how busy he is, Janke takes the time to help his advisees perfect their resumes. He can be contacted via phone, e-mail or Webmail.
