Julie Stanton received her B.S. in Economics from Georgetown University, and her Ph.D. in Agricultural Economics from the University of Maryland. Dr. Stanton’s expertise is in consumer interest in organic and other niche foods, and in food marketing channels between developing and developed country markets. Dr. Stanton has published in respected peer-reviewed journals such as Research in Consumer Behavior, Journal of Consumer Behaviour, Supply Chain Management, and Journal of Food Products Marketing. She is an active participant in the annual Macromarketing Conferences and the Marketing and Public Policy Conference among others.
In her teaching, Dr. Stanton seeks both to create capable business professionals as well as to foster their greater sensitivity to the global business environment. Because of her experiences gained over a decade of working with the World Bank in Washington DC, she encourages students to examine course topics in the context of developing country conditions. These skills are important preparation for careers in business today.
Outside interests include spending time with her three small daughters, working on home improvement projects and travel.
