Francis O. Pianki
Director of Residential MBA
Associate Professor of Management
Why did you choose to teach/work at Anderson University?
When I first interviewed, I was impressed with the vision "to be the premier Christian business program in the world". Since joining the faculty, I have seen this vision influence our growth into new and innovative programs at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels. What could be more exciting than to be part of this experience!
What is something that you have been part of at AU that brings you joy?
Being involved in the development and direction of the Residential MBA program has been a terrific experience. I think we have created something special, and I love working with the RMBA students!
What do you like to do for fun?
I love hanging out with my family. I especially enjoy spoiling my grandsons and taking them for rides in my red mustang convertible!
What is one thing that makes you unique?
I enjoy running marathons and ultra-marathons. In the past three years I've run 5 marathons and a 50 mile ultra.
