The Huntsman School of Business decided it was time to seize the teacher.

At the time Fjeldsted was the managing director of Citigroup Global Markets, Inc. At Citigroup, Fjeldsted had been responsible for structuring and trading bonds and derivatives on the emerging markets of Central and South America. He worked some of his time in Cache Valley and some of his time in New York City and Latin America.

The Jon M. Huntsman School of Business decided to create a new opportunity for Fjeldsted and soon he was teaching part-time. Now, in fall 2009, Fjeldsted will be ramping up his involvement as a senior lecturer in the Department of Economics and Finance.

Fjeldsted graduated from USU, Magna Cum Laude, in 1986 with a liberal arts degree and from Harvard Business School in 1990.
