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.
