Phil Stuczynski has spent time working in various managerial roles and also time managing and transferring risk for assets with a specialization in insurance. Although Phil enjoyed the time he spent in the private sector, he returned to education where he feels he can have a greater impact on others.

After completed his undergraduate degree, he pursued and completed an MBA from Penn State Behrend. During this time Phil discovered interests in multiple areas of business. This has translated to the classroom where Phil has taught courses in Finance, Economics, and Accounting. Currently Phil teaches Corporate Finance, Investments and Portfolio Analysis, and Financial Statements and Management Decisions through both Penn State Behrend and online through the World Campus. Phil is also working on additional designations to further his education, and continues to consult in various roles.

When not continuing to do work in the educational realm, Phil enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. He is also an avid sports fan and has interest in many charities. 


I am a firm believer that education is not a mold, but rather an enhancement. It is not my job as an instructor to simply tell a student how to behave or how to fit into the current society. I have always felt that it is my job to equip each and every one of my students with the ability to better function in society with more powerful minds and a more enlightened way of thinking. Thinking outside of the box will be a requirement in coming years for anyone to succeed, and I strongly believe that each student needs to understand rather than memorize.
