Top finance professor from U.S. joins faculty at TWU

Langley, British Columbia—Just a few years ago, Brian Korb was teaching economics and finance at West Point, New York, in the top U.S. Military Academy where notable U.S. officials and American presidents have been trained. This year, he will be teaching the same at Trinity Western University. Korb has joined the faculty in TWU’s School of Business where he will teach corporate finance, investments, and money and banking.

“I look forward to teaching values and ethics along with course material,” says Korb, “and to impacting students’ lives in a small classroom environment, where excellence in the subject matter along with spiritual growth is emphasized.”

Korb is one of only 800 people in the U.S. and Canada to hold both the Certified Financial Planner and Chartered Financial Analyst designations, the top professional designations in financial planning and investment management. In addition to teaching at West Point, Korb has worked for more than 15 years in finance, including eight years in personal finance, four years in corporate finance and three years in government finance.

Korb, who moved from Dayton, Ohio, to the Fraser Valley with his wife and three children, is one of 13 new full-time faculty members to join Trinity Western University this fall.

Trinity Western University, located in Langley, B.C., is a not-for-profit Christian liberal arts university enrolling over 3,000 students this year. With a broad-based, liberal arts and sciences curriculum, the University offers undergraduate degrees in 35 major areas ranging from business, education and computer science to biology and nursing, and 12 graduate degrees including counselling psychology, theology and administrative leadership.
