Business Management

Ryan Eanes

Assistant Professor of Business Management & Director of Minor in Marketing

What do your consumption habits say about who you are?

We are defined by our patterns of consumption. Every day we make countless decisions about what to wear, what to eat, what to buy, what to watch, what to listen to… All of these decisions, whether we consciously attend to them or not, come together to form an expression of the self that we want to show the world. Complicating this process is our dual existence, both online and in the analog world.

I hope to illustrate these complex realities to my students through my teaching, and my research also aims to try and unravel some of the questions surrounding these patterns of behavior.

When I’m not teaching, advising, researching or writing at WAC, you’ll probably find me at home in downtown Wilmington, Delaware, where I live on Market Street with my dog Hiro, a woolly shiba inu.
