Columbia Business School in conjunction with the Office of the Dean provides its faculty, PhD students, and other research staff with resources and cutting edge tools and technology to help push the boundaries of business research.

Specifically, our goal is to seamlessly help faculty set up and execute their research programs. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Providing a state-of-the-art high-performance grid computing environment

  • Acquisition of data sets and access to various databases

  • Access to funding and external grants to support research activities

  • Highly skilled staff of part-time research assistants and full-time research coordinators/associates

All these activities help to facilitate and streamline faculty research, and that of the doctoral students working with them.
