America’s economic future is vital to individuals and families in every community. It is especially significant to college students pursuing a business career today. As demand for economics graduates grows in every industry, Cornerstone University proudly celebrates the appointment of Dr. Jeffery Degner, assistant professor of economics, as a fellow by the renowned Mises Institute.

The Mises Institute is recognized as one of the world’s foremost academic institutes advancing Austrian economics, liberty, and peace. The institute has a global presence and influence and has held more than 1,000 teaching conferences and seminars on subjects from monetary policy to the history of war, as well as the international and interdisciplinary Austrian Economics Research Conference.

Dr. Degner joins 21 other international fellows from France, Spain, Germany, Turkey, the UK, Poland, and Italy, as well as United States scholars from Baylor University, Oklahoma State University, and other research-focused universities.

This prestigious recognition reflects Dr. Degner’s exceptional contributions to teaching, research, and advancement of free market economics scholarship. Business students across every ACBSP-accredited degree at Cornerstone University will benefit from Dr. Degner’s research findings and real-world economic applications as a Mises Institute Fellow.

“I’m honored and grateful to join the Mises Institute as a fellow alongside respected colleagues from around the world. It’s a remarkable opportunity to advance the principles of free markets and civic virtue that promote human flourishing,” Dr. Degner affirmed.

Cornerstone University’s School of Business & Innovation is one of the few universities in the nation that advances a sophisticated and compelling Christian worldview that serves as the foundation and backbone of free market and economic freedom principles. This singular approach coupled with the school’s talented faculty and market-relevant academic curricula educate and prepare students to understand and apply economic and business principles that protect and facilitate human flourishing and advance business excellence and success.

It also advances the CU Promise to students, families and the nation to educate graduates who are Biblically grounded in a Christian worldview. Valued future leaders of skill and character who are academically excellent, possessing the in-demand skills most relevant to the marketplace or ministry of their chosen field. Men and women who honor Christ in all that they do in life.

“Cornerstone is committed to educating and preparing students to be women and men of great Christian influence in their personal and professional spheres,” said Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño, president of Cornerstone University. “Faculty like Dr. Degner are essential to realize this commitment. We rejoice with Dr. Degner’s distinguished Mises Fellow appointment and look forward to his many important contributions at Cornerstone as we continue to become the Destination of Choice for Christian higher education.”
