Simon Business School

World-Class Faculty

Our expert faculty: your invaluable resource.

The Simon faculty is truly in a class by itself. It is an elite group of some of the business world's top thinkers and researchers. You will be guided and mentored by people who wrote the book on their subjects. The discussions you will have both in and out of the classroom will push you to look at the world of business from a new perspective, and then to apply the research and methods to your own, real-world business endeavors.

Our skill and experience will drive your discovery.

Our faculty are among the top researchers in the country and regularly incorporate their work into class curriculum. While best known for their academic excellence, Simon Business School professors are extremely approachable and relish the opportunity for an exchange of ideas.

You will also learn from our research.
