About

Launched in 2010 under the leadership of founding director Laurie Hodrick, the A. Barton Hepburn Professor of Economics in the Faculty of Business, the Program for Financial Studies supports initiatives in the field of financial studies at Columbia Business School. Program synergies derive from connecting the School’s faculty members, who approach financial studies from a variety of disciplines, with Columbia Business School’s students, alumni, and external constituencies.

The program’s primary initiatives include supporting research and the development of intellectual capital, enhancing the curriculum and activities for students, and creating external outreach opportunities to promote an ongoing exchange of ideas on timely topics of interest. The program is generously supported by an academic advisory board and an executive advisory board.
