Many MBA applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand, but the educational experience itself is crucial to your future, and no one will affect your education more than your professors. Each Wednesday, we profile a standout professor as identified by students. Today, we profile Campbell Harvey from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business.
Multiple students interviewed by mbaMission described Campbell “Cam” Harvey (“Global Asset Allocation” and “Emerging Markets Corporate Finance”) as an “amazing” professor, and one second year remarked, “He alone should give Fuqua a place in the top ten as a go-to school for finance.” Another second year we interviewed had not yet taken Harvey’s class but noted, “He has spoken numerous times about the financial crisis, which was extremely helpful.” Harvey has published more than 100 scholarly articles, is editor of The Journal of Finance and serves on both the board of directors and the executive committee for the American Finance Association. His hypertextual finance glossary—which includes more than 8,000 entries and 18,000 hyperlinks—has been covered, linked to and cited by the New York Times, Forbes, Bloomberg, the Washington Post, CNNMoney and Yahoo. In addition, Harvey coauthored the book version of The New York Times Dictionary of Money and Investing, published in 2002, with Pulitzer Prize winner Gretchen Morgenson. An alumnus mbaMission interviewed said that Harvey was “one of the best professors I had,” adding that he is “very tough, very brilliant, and very good at explaining things.”
