Positions

Overview

  • Thomas Birch arrived at UNH Manchester in 1987 and fell in love with teaching the diverse students attending our college. Dr. Birch finds that one of the attractive features of the UNH Manchester Business Program is its commitment to a liberal arts education while preparing students to be thoughtful as well as effective participants in the business world. He said, "Chances are you will not combine economics and literature like me, but your undergraduate experience at UNH Manchester will allow you to explore interactions between business and economics, business and politics, business and communication, business and technology, and provide many other opportunities to forge creative connections of your own."

    He grew up in the Midwest and majored in economics as an undergraduate at a small liberal arts college in Ohio. He did his graduate work at Indiana University where he received a Ph.D. in Economics in 1983. His dissertation emphasized the importance of evaluating government investment projects in terms of their influence on business investment decisions and resulting tax revenue.
