Dr. David Krause

Dr. David Krause, director of the Marquette University College of Business Administration's nationally recognized Applied Investment Management program, has been honored with the first-ever Edward A. Brennan Master Teacher Award. The award was founded this spring through a nearly $1 million award from the family of the late Edward Brennan, former chairman, president and CEO of Sears.
Dr. Krause, who joined Marquette in 2004 and was instrumental in building the AIM program, will carry the title of Brennan Master Teacher for three years, a distinction that rewards and encourages excellence in teaching.
