Professor Larsen followed the advice of author Harvey Mackay who suggested, “Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”  So far, it has worked well for him and he recommends the same for his students.  Dr. Larsen has been with Wright State since 1987.  Previously he was on the faculty at Marquette University, the University of Nebraska, and Creighton University.  His research interests are eclectic, but focus on real estate brokerage and property valuation.  Professor Larsen is on the editorial board of several academic journals.  In recent years, his teaching responsibilities have centered on corporate finance.  Regardless of the subject matter, he appreciates the motivated students at Wright State.  Professor Larsen’s favorite nonacademic pastime is golf.  He attributes his increasing scores in this endeavor not to deteriorating skill, but to the successful accomplishment of the subliminal goal of reducing his cost per stroke.
