Preeminent Management Research
Columbia Business School’s Management Division includes scholars and teachers who are trained in a wide range of academic disciplines and experienced in business, government, and nonprofit management. These qualities underlie the division’s record in the world of scholarship and in the School’s program of professional education.
The faculty’s research applies cutting-edge methodologies to the study of management issues in diverse organizational and societal settings. Our faculty members are published in the citadel journals of economics, psychology, and sociology.
The research skills and rich management experiences of the faculty combine to give the division a leading teaching role in the School’s degree programs. In the MBA and EMBA programs, members of the management faculty teach many of the most sought-after elective courses on topics such as top management processes, decision making, and negotiation.
Our goals are to maintain a preeminent position in scholarly research and to expand our record of teaching excellence. To accomplish these goals, our strategy continues to be to recruit, promote, and retain top talent while providing a culture and infrastructure that helps the management faculty realize its full potential.
