Prof. Jesse A. Schwartz
I came to
Kennesaw State Universityin 2004 as an associate professor in economics. Before that, I taught at Vanderbilt Universityfor five years. I earned my Ph.D. in economics from the University of Maryland and my M.A. in economics from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. As an applied microeconomic theorist, I research in the areas of auctions, bargaining, and game theory. I have published articles in Social Choice and Welfare, The International Journal of Industrial Organization, The Journal of Economics and Management Strategy, The Journal of Regulatory Economics, Contributions to Economic Analysis & Policy, and Environmental and Resource Economics.
