Under the aegis of the Richard Paul Richman Center for Business, Law, and Public Policy, Columbia University’s Business and Law Schools benefit from an unprecedented opportunity to jointly lead discourse on issues at the crossroads of their respective disciplines. The Business School is a powerful generator of ideas on economics, business, and public policy, and the Law School plays a leading role in the analysis and improvement of law, legal institutions, and public policy in a global society. The Business and Law Schools complement each other with their strengths, providing a strong foundation for collaborative research on issues of shared relevance and for articulating ideas at the level of policy and regulation.

Columbia Business School, established in 1916, is at the forefront of management education. Its innovative curriculum bridges academic theory and practice, equipping students with an entrepreneurial mindset to recognize and capture opportunity in a competitive business arena. Beyond academic rigor and teaching excellence, the Business School offers programs that are designed to give students practical experience, preparing them for leadership in real-world environments.

Columbia Law School, founded in 1858, joins its traditional strengths in business law, international and comparative law, constitutional law, administrative law, and human rights law with pioneering work in the areas of intellectual property, sexuality and gender, criminal, national security, and environmental law.

The world economies seem to be recovering from the financial crisis of 2008, but where are they headed? What opportunities will there be? What challenges will be faced by policy makers? What new forces are at work that we haven’t faced before? Unlike past recoveries we are confronted with unique challenges. In fact three big trends are interacting in ways that will impact all economies. Potential GDP growth rates are slowing in most large economies, populations of large nations with big GDPs are aging and the economic wellbeing of everyone is being impacted by inequality of income and wealth. Join us to understand these issues better and what policy challenges our leaders will have to address. Get a grip on what it means to you, your country and those around you as Neal Soss, Vice Chairman, Research at Credit Suisse explores many aspects of these three dynamics that will impact us all.
