ERIE, Pa. — Penn State Behrend is going to need a bigger shelf.

Faculty members at Penn State Behrend’s Black School of Business have published 32 books and book chapters since 2017. During the same period, they have published more than 175 journal articles and given 426 presentations on their research.

Filbeck, who also holds the Samuel Patton Black III Chair in Finance and Risk Management, has long been able to switch between the classroom and the writer’s office. He recently entered into a 10-book deal with Oxford University Press and has published 16 books in total. The most recent, “The Savvy Investor’s Guide to Building Wealth Through Alternative Investments, co-authored with H. Kent Baker and Andrew Spieler, was published in July.
