About the Institute

In 1991, our founder, Jerome A. Chazen, MBA ’50, recognized the need for a new kind of leader: one who understands cross-cultural issues and their impact on business. That vision led to the creation of the Jerome A. Chazen Institute of International Business, which serves as the hub of global activity at Columbia Business School. The institute draws on the expertise of world-class faculty members and business leaders to help shape the thinking and discourse on major global business issues. By sharing its thought leadership, training the next generation of global leaders, and supporting major research, the Chazen Institute serves as a gateway to the people and ideas that transform the international marketplace.
