Hello! My name is Tom Hamami, and I’m an assistant professor of business management and the John Barlow Murray ’37 and Nellie Weiss Murray ’37 Professor in Economics. I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland and studied accounting and economics and the University of Maryland, College Park before completing my doctorate in managerial economics and strategy at Northwestern University.

I have been teaching at Ripon College since 2017. In the department of economics and business management, I teach the entire microeconomics sequence, from introductory (Principles) through intermediate (Price Theory) to advanced electives (Game Theory and Industrial Organization). I also teach the department’s mathematics course, which I designed from scratch to prepare our students for upper-level coursework in economics and finance. At the time of this writing, I am also designing a brand-new Catalyst course where students will develop their quantitative reasoning skills by analyzing the National Football League’s salary cap. Outside the classroom, I serve as faculty advisor for the Creative Enterprise Center (our student-run business consulting firm) and the Ripon College Gaming club.

I currently live in Green Lake, Wisconsin with my wife and two young children.

I have been a resident of Ripon since 1984 and an adjunct professor, off & on, since 1992. My focus was business, entrepreneurship, and the relationship of business to society. Recently, I developed a course to introduce students to techniques and styles of management.
My vocation was hospital management, then COO of a 1 million square foot distribution warehouse, and an executive director of a Red Cross Chapter.

I’m an applied microeconomist with a liberal arts background who likes to connect the theories and data of economics with the wider world of people and ideas. I grew up mainly in Pennsylvania and Upper Michigan before studying in a liberal arts college in Minnesota and graduate school in Wisconsin. Travel across the world and research in several Latin American countries inform my teaching of international and development economics courses. In environmental economics and history of economic thought, I connect economics with other ways of seeing the world in natural science and history. I also dig into the big picture of economic concepts and data with students in principles of macroeconomics and intermediate macroeconomics, as well as Catalyst seminars. My two children grew up in Ripon where my wife and I enjoy living.
