Hubbard to advance the Chazen Institute’s position on the world stage
NEW YORK – The Jerome A. Chazen Institute for Global Business today announced the appointment of Glenn Hubbard as its Faculty Director. After leading Columbia Business School as dean from 2004-2019, Hubbard will now lead the Chazen Institute’s efforts to help shape the thinking and discourse on major global business issues.
“Glenn has supported, and been involved with, the Chazen Institute for many years, said Jerome A. Chazen, founder of the Chazen Institute. “His global view and insights are always invaluable, and now we’ll be able to use his know-how to widen the Institute’s influence.”
Hubbard joined Columbia Business School in 1988 in the Economics Division after receiving his PhD from Harvard in 1983. He is a leading expert in the areas of public finance, managerial information, and incentive problems in corporate finance and financial markets and institutions. He has written more than 100 articles and books on corporate finance, investment decisions, banking, energy economics, and public policy, including three textbooks. His work has wide ranging applications in business, public service, and academia, and he has held multiple leadership positions within the School and in government.
“The Chazen Institute has built a definitive hub of global business activity. I can’t impress upon you the number of times a student or alumnus has come up to me and spoken about the change in their life because of Chazen Institute programming,” said Glenn Hubbard, Dean Emeritus and the Russell L. Carson Professor of Finance and Economics at Columbia Business School. “I hope to help the Institute take faculty and business leadership and export it around the world.”
For more than 25 years, the Chazen Institute has led the Business School’s international programs, activities, and resources. The Institute draws on the expertise of world-class scholars and business leaders to generate ideas and insights that shape how global business is conducted.
