Photo from the 2019 Graham & Dodd Breakfast

Inaugurated in 1990, the Graham & Dodd Breakfast exemplifies eight decades of Graham and Dodd tradition at Columbia Business School. Held in New York City every fall, the breakfast brings together alumni, students, scholars, and practitioners for a forum on current insights and approaches to investing. This highly successful and invigorating event attracts some of the most prominent figures in the investing community.

The Columbia Business School gratefully acknowledges Barbara Dodd Anderson, Charles Royce ’63, and Robert Bruce ’70, whose support initiated and established this prestigious and venerable series.
