Nune Hovhannisyan, Ph.D.

  • Academic Focus Economics

Nune Hovhannisyan, Ph.D., associate professor of economics, is originally from Yerevan, Armenia. She earned her bachelor’s degree in economics from Yerevan State University in Armenia, her master’s degree in economics from Bowling Green State University, and both a master’s and Ph.D. from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Her research and expertise focus on international economics, and she is often asked to speak on these topics. In fact, one of her papers on international business travel for innovation and international knowledge transfer was featured in the Wall Street Journal. Hovhannisyan began teaching at Loyola in 2013 and continues to develop meaningful relationships with her students by really getting to know each student by name and encouraging them to achieve academic excellence through constant reflection. “I think a Jesuit, liberal arts education provides an all-around perspective on economic issues through different prisms, such as philosophy, ethics, so on,” says Hovhannisyan. In her free time, she enjoys figure skating and playing tennis.

I like the sense of community, the fantastic colleagues, and the motivated and dedicated students here at Loyola. Our small classes mean professors can connect with our students and learn everyone’s names.
