You've surely heard the expression that those who can, do. And, those who can't, teach. Kirby Cundiff proves this theory wrong, by not only teaching his students about the stock market, but by being a successful market participant, as well. Beginning his own education at Truman State University, Kirby earned his B.S. in physics. Later, he received his M.S. (finance) and Ph.D. (theoretical physics) from the University of Illinois. Kirby has over 10 years of experience teaching undergraduate and graduate courses at several prominent institutions, including the University of Maryland, Rice University, and the University of Illinois. Kirby also operates his own investment consulting firm.
