Value investing is more than an investment strategy — it’s a fundamental way of thinking about finance. The Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing was established in 2001 to ensure a permanent home for value investing at the Columbia Business School, the birthplace of the value approach. Today the Heilbrunn Center is helping educate a new generation of value investors.

The mission of the Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing is to promote the study and practice of Graham & Dodd’s original investing principles; to improve investing with world-class education, research, and practitioner-academic dialogue; and to further Columbia Business School’s role as the leading resource for investment management professionals.

Heilbrunn Family

The young Robert enrolled in Graham’s course as a nondegree student and became a practitioner of the value approach. During the Great Depression, Graham’s wisdom allowed the young Robert to manage the family’s assets, and he was thereafter a lifelong disciple.

The Heilbrunn family established the Robert Heilbrunn Professorship of Finance and Asset Management in 1988. The professorship heralded a renaissance of the value tradition at Columbia Business School.

In 2001, the Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing was established by Robert and Harriet Heilbrunn, ensuring the permanency of the investing franchise at the School.
