Guest Biography

Associate Professor Michael Ehrlich, PhD, had an international Wall Street career before joining NJIT’s Martin Tuchman School of Management. Upon leaving Wall Street, Ehrlich started a small technology company that he sold in 2007.

Ehrlich’s research focus is on financial markets and institutions, especially early stage companies, with an emphasis on 1) innovation, entrepreneurship, and the commercialization of technology; and 2) market failures. As Associate Editor of the Journal of Corporate Accounting & Finance, he promotes the cross pollination of scholarly research with practitioner cases to foster real world impact. Ehrlich founded and co-directs the New Jersey Innovation Acceleration Center and was recently awarded an NSF I-Corps Site grant to support the commercialization of technology. He is also the Associate Director for the Leir Center for Financial Bubble Research.

Ehrlich received his doctorate from Princeton University in economics. His bachelor’s degree is from Yale University.
