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 Aswath Damodaran from New York University’s (NYU’s) Leonard N. Stern School of Business.
Having earned the Stern School of Business Excellence in Teaching Award (awarded by the graduating class) seven times during his career at NYU, Aswath Damodaran (“Corporate Finance,” “Equity Instruments and Markets”) is known for being available to assist students in any way he can. During mbaMission’s tour of the school, a student from the Class of 2009 told us of having sought Damodaran’s counsel about a project he was assigned during a summer internship and how the professor had happily obliged. Damodaran is widely published, with more than ten titles to his name, including Corporate Finance and Investment Valuation—textbooks used in some of his classes.
