Academic and Professional Engagement Activities
Dr. Mantell joined the Lubin faculty in 1979. Since then he has been active in graduate teaching and in financial and economic research. In most of his courses, Dr. Mantell teaches MBA candidates at the New York City campus in the areas of advanced corporate finance and managerial economics. He also occasionally teaches BA/MBA students on the Pleasantville campus. Dr. Mantell has also served on dissertation-reading committees for doctoral candidates in finance and economics.
In addition to teaching, Dr. Mantell acts as a mentor for students. He discusses job prospects with them and prepares letters of recommendation for them to prospective employers as well as in support of the applications of his graduate students for advanced graduate degrees at other institutions: for example, Columbia University, New York University, and the University of Manchester (U.K.)
Much of Dr. Mantell's published research is focused on the application of stochastic processes to corporate finance. That is, in his papers he creates mathematical models and uses them to explain and explore economic and financial issues.
He has been continually engaged with professional associations and their activities. In the last year, he served as a journal reviewer for manuscripts submitted to the Cogent Journal of Economics and Finance. In the past he also acted as a reviewer for manuscripts submitted to the Review of Quantitative Finance and Accounting as well as the International Research Journal of Applied Finance.
Dr. Mantell has presented his research findings at many professional meetings including the annual meetings of the National Association of Business Economists and the International Atlantic Economic Association. In 2014, he was presented with the Best Article award by the flagship journal of the International Atlantic Economic Association for his article: Rational Reserve Pricing in Sequential Auctions.
Recently, Dr. Mantell served as an unpaid economic consultant to the Bar Association of the City of New York. In that connection, he prepared a statistical study analyzing the attitudes of the New York State judiciary regarding the benefits and the costs of introducing live television broadcasts of civil and criminal trials. In the years after the attacks on the World Trade Center he acted as an unpaid economic consultant to the Chief Administrator of the September 11, 2001 Victims' Compensation Fund, Kenneth Feinberg. Dr. Mantell calculated the financial losses to the survivors of several of the victims of the attacks.
