Dr. Levin formerly taught international finance in the Queens College BBA Program. Originally from California, he previously practiced Public Accounting before graduate studies. As a BMCC Professor, Levin loves Manhattan for its access to unique cultural and business opportunities. The College’s proximity to Wall Street offers a rarely so close view into recent crises. He exclaims, “The entire field of economics is changing right before our eyes. It’s about a new market balance between supply and demand. My students are figuring this out in the classroom!”
