Personal Bio

Marc A. Cohen joined the faculty of the Albers School in the fall of 2008. He earned a doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania and holds a joint appointment in the philosophy department at Seattle University. His academic work concerns trust, business ethics, social contract theory, and more general questions in social/ political philosophy about what makes society more than an accidental crowd. Prior to joining Albers, Dr. Cohen served as vice president and corporate strategist at Branch Banking & Trust Co. (North Carolina), as assistant vice president in the Bank's middle market commercial lending group, and as a management consultant at Mercer Management Consulting (now part of Oliver Wyman).
