Columbia Business School’s position in the heart of New York City places it at the most important nexus of the global financial industry. It’s no coincidence that finance and economics are at the very core of Columbia Business School’s research and scholarship.
Finance and Economics is the School’s largest division, in terms of both faculty and courses taught. Its scholarship runs wide and deep, taking in everything from stock market fundamentals to corporate finance, real estate, and micro- and macroeconomics. The 2007–08 financial crisis and subsequent recession underlined the real-world application and importance of rigorous research in these areas.
