The Chazen Institute’s mission is to support, sponsor, and promote thought leadership and frontier research on issues of significance to the global economy and business. It is also the focal point for international programs and initiatives at Columbia Business School.
The Institute derives its strength from proximity to a world-class faculty at Columbia Business School and other parts of Columbia University. For example, in the area of international economics and business alone, the University boasts over twenty prominent scholars including Nobel Laureates in economics and former senior economics officials in governments and international organizations. Many of these luminaries are featured in our robust schedule of forums, conferences, and events, many of which are open to the public.
If you are a reporter or a researcher, I hope you will discover ideas and inspirations by reading our signature e-newsletter, Chazen Global Insights. In it, you'll find interviews with leading researchers and policy makers, recaps of talks and events, and thought-provoking commentaries on some of the most important issues facing the global business community.
If you are a student, you'll find details on the many ways the Chazen Institute is helping to develop the next generation of business leaders, including language courses, study tours, global immersion classes, and exchange programs with other graduate business schools.
If you are a research scholar from an overseas institution and are interested in visiting Columbia Business School, click here for information on eligibility and necessary procedures.
If you are supporter, I hope you will find evidence that your support has made a difference. If you have suggestions on new opportunities in research, teaching, and outreach, please let us know and perhaps work with us to advance the Chazen Institute’s mission.
