Dr. Cebula chose to be a professor because his uncle was a chemist and professor. He had spent two weeks with his uncle going to the office with him, and got to see him conducting research and the way he interacted with his students. He began his education at Fordham University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in 1966. He then received a Master of Arts from the University of Georgia in 1968, and went on to obtain a Doctor of Philosophy from Georgia State University in 1971.

Dr. Cebula has been editor, associate editor and editorial board member of the Annals of Regional Science, International Advances in Economic Research, the Journal of Economics and Finance, and the American Journal of Economics and Sociology, among many others. He has also authored 15 books and has contributed more than 550 articles to scholarly journals. In 2007, he received the Kenneth G.

To date, he has co-authored 58 articles with his students. He was also awarded a Citation of Excellence from ANBAR Electronic Intelligence in the United Kingdom in 1996. He is listed in several editions of Who's Who in America, Who's Who in Science and Engineering, and Who's Who in Economics: Biographical Dictionary of the 1,500 Major Economists Since 1700.
