The Columbia School of Business (CBS) recently named a new vice dean for teaching in an effort to help support innovative instruction by faculty members. Professor Mark Broadie will assume this inaugural role beginning on September 1st.
Currently the research director for the Program for Financial Studies and a professor of business in the decision, risk and operations division, Broadie will work to strengthen content links within and across courses in his new role as teaching vice dean.
