Frank D'Souza, Ph.D.
When it comes to teaching finance in the Sellinger School of Business and Management, Frank D’Souza, Ph.D., focuses on opportunities for students to gain real-life experience. His Student Applied Portfolio course gives select seniors the rare opportunity to research and make recommendations on which stocks to trade in an effort to increase the value in a portion of Loyola’s endowment funds. Known as the Student-Managed Sellinger Applied Portfolio Fund (or SAP Fund), the program is funded with $500,000 of Loyola endowment money and run by the guidelines of the endowment. The professor of finance received his Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Bombay, his Master of Business Administration from St. Cloud University, and his Ph.D. from Oklahoma State University. Recent published papers focus on conflicts of interest in the credit rating industry, the impact of Sarbanes-Oxley on market efficiency, and the gender and ethnic diversity of U.S. boards.
