Our faculty is truly in a class by itself. This elite group represents some of the business world's top thinkers and researchers. These brilliant men and women are leading in innovation and research in their given fields, and they’re here to guide you, mentor you, and exchange ideas. You’ll participate in discussions that will push you to view business from a new perspective, and then apply the research and methods you’ll discover to your own, real-world business endeavors.
In addition to their own research, our faculty founded and edit top journals, some of which are published at Simon. For example, the Journal of Financial Economics, which is the premier journal in financial research, was launched and is still managed at Simon. Ground-breaking research like Senior Associate Dean Ron Goettler's work on Competition and Product Innovation in Dynamic Oligopoly underlines the excellence of scholarship at Simon.
