Travis Davidson, Ph.D.
Chair; Associate Professor
My name is Travis Davidson and I am an Associate Professor in the Finance Department at Ohio University. I have taught at Ohio University since obtaining my PhD in Finance from Oklahoma State University in 2012. I also earned an MS in Quantitative Financial Economics from Oklahoma State University and a bachelor’s degree in MIS with a minor in Accounting from Southern Illinois University. I have experience teaching a variety of courses including Corporate Finance, Bank Management, Risk and Insurance, and Markets and Institutions. My primary area of research is banks, but I am also interested in studying other financial institutions, corporate governance, and a variety of other financial topics. I have published peer-reviewed research on the Federal Home Loan Bank, bank-owned life insurance, deposit insurance, board of directors of business, corporate social responsibility, and tracking stocks.
In my free time I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my family. My hobbies include outdoor activities (hiking, backpacking, canoeing, skiing, etc.), watching live music, and traveling.
Dr. Davidson teaches Ohio University’s Online MBA Finance concentration courses.
