Kip Sigetich joined the faculty at SOU in 1989 and currently is Associate Professor of Business and Economics. He has an appointment and teaching responsibilities in both the School of Business and the Economics Program. In addition, Professor Sigetich is Coordinator of the Certificate in Applied Finance and Economics (CAFE) program, a joint offering of the School of Business and the Department of Economics.

Professor Sigetich earned his B.A. degree in Economics at Wayne State University, where he was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. He also played intercollegiate golf at Wayne State. His M.A. and Ph.D. degrees, also in Economics, were earned at Stanford University. Dr. Sigetich's research and academic interests are primarily in the areas of investments, financial market and institution behavior and operations, and money and banking. His professional interests led him to a job in the banking industry, where he was a business research economist and Director of Economic Analysis for a large California bank before coming to SOU.

Professor Sigetich lives with his family in Ashland, Oregon. He does, in fact, have interests outside the academic setting--the main ones being hiking, traveling, and gardening. He and his family have traveled and hiked extensively throughout the western United States but have an especially strong affinity for the desert Southwest around Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, and the Grand Canyon.
