Faculty Profile: Tano Santos

"In today's difficult times, value investing, the approach pioneered by Ben Graham here at Columbia Business School, offers a time-tested method to navigate volatile markets. Our program offers not just the necessary tools – from accounting to microeconomics, from valuation to psychology – but also real world case studies featuring actual investments made by leading value investors so that students can learn first-hand how the greatest practitioners search for ideas, perform research and valuation, and finally implement risk management."

          —Tano Santos, Franklin Pitcher Johnson, Jr. Professor of Finance and Economics

Professor Santos, who earned his PhD from the University of Chicago in 1996, has focused his research on asset pricing with an emphasis on theoretical and empirical models. Professor Santos was recently appointed co-Director of the Heilbrunn Center for Graham and Dodd investing and currently co-teaches Introduction to Value Investing with Professor Greenwald in the full-time MBA program.
