Faculty Feature - Eric Malm, PhD

Posted on 4/18/2018 11:24:17 AM

Eric Malm, PhD, Chair of the Business Department and Associate Professor of Economics and Business Management, has taught a taught a wide variety of courses during his 12 years at Cabrini, Eric Malmsuch as economics, technology, small business management, and community development. This year Malm published two books that stemmed from his work at Cabrini. The two-part series focuses on the growing number of students who are balancing school with work and other significant adult responsibilities.  

Do you have a favorite subject
matter—or lesson—that you teach?
While I like all the classes I teach, Management Information Systems may be my favorite. Why?  Because the course focuses on how companies are using new technologies to compete. Since technology is always changing, the course is never the same from one semester to another.  The students and I learn together!

What is your go-to advice for Cabrini
Get out, try new things, and use your time in college to get as many experiences as you can.  As Steve Jobs once said “you can only connect the dots looking backward,” meaning that you can’t predict where life will take you. But if you get out and do things, and then reflect on what you like (and what you don’t), you’ll probably end up somewhere good… and often somewhere you could never have predicted.

What is your favorite item in your office and why?
I have lots of great photos in my office. Pictures of my kids, class trips, and vacation adventures are a great window into my world, and help me appreciate the good things in life.
