Professional business portrait of Dr. Keshav Gupta, Kutztown University.

The Department of Business Administration announces the August 2020 retirement of Dr. Keshav Gupta. Gupta joined the faculty in 1991. When he arrived, he found that the finance curriculum needed major revision. He quickly revamped the curriculum and since then has worked tirelessly with his colleagues on regular updates to ensure that the curriculum keeps pace with changes in the job market. Also, during his nearly 30 years at Kutztown University, Gupta has served as an adviser to the Finance Club. He enjoyed working with students and helping them prepare for a successful job in finance. During his tenure at KU, Gupta served as chair to the Department of Accounting and Finance and later to the Department of Business Administration. Read more.
