Dean Meyer Feldberg to Step Down after 15 Years

Columbia Business School’s Dean Meyer Feldberg ’65 informed the School community that he is stepping down effective June 30, 2004. The announcement caps a successful 15-year renaissance for Columbia Business School, which has capitalized on its New York City location and vast network of business leaders to become one of the world’s preeminent business schools.

More than 40 percent of Columbia Business School’s living alumni graduated during Feldberg’s tenure. Under his leadership, applications to the School tripled, the curriculum was revamped to meet the international business needs of the 21st century, the Executive MBA programs expanded internationally, alumni renewed their connection to the School and fundraising dramatically increased. Feldberg is the longest-serving dean of a top ten business school.
