University Mourns Passing of Susan L. Malley, Former Area Chair for Finance


Susan L. Malley, Ph.D., a member of Fordham’s business faculty from 1979 to 1987, died Saturday, May 3. She was 59.

Malley received her undergraduate degree from the College of New Rochelle in 1970, her M.B.A. from Baruch College in 1973 and doctorate from New York University five years later.

At Fordham, Malley focused on investment and portfolio analysis. She was an area chair for finance, faculty member in the Graduate School and College of Business Administration and dedicated member of the Fordham community.

“We worked closely together; she was an extraordinarily good person in every regard,” said David Stuhr, Ph.D., associate vice president for academic affairs. “She was truly one of the spark plugs on the faculty—a tremendously positive force.”

Stuhr recalled that Malley was instrumental in helping him to establish an MBA program taught by Fordham faculty in Ireland at the Irish Management Institute.

In addition to her research and teaching, Malley sat on the salary and benefits committee of the faculty senate and represented the business faculty during Fordham’s Middle States accreditation process.

From 1990 to 1995, Malley was co-chair of the Board of Directors and chief investment officer of Citicorp Investment Services, a retail brokerage subsidiary of Citibank, N.A. She left that position to open Malley Associates Capital Management, where she served as president and chief investment officer.

A Funeral Mass will be held on Wednesday, May 7 at Holy Trinity Church, 213 West 82nd Street. For details about the arrangements, please call (212) 787-2506.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Calvary Hospice.
