Professor Profiles: William Silber, NYU Stern School of Business

Many MBA applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand when they choose a business school at attend, 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 William Silber from New York University’s (NYU’s) Leonard N. Stern School of Business.

Students with whom mbaMission spoke commented that William Silber’s “Foundations of Finance” class is “almost like a performance,” as he keeps students engaged with stories of real-world situations from his background in industry. Silber was formerly a trader and frequently relies on anecdotes from his experiences at the New York Mercantile Exchange and Lehman Brothers to illustrate complex financial issues for his students.
