MBA News: Romney’s Gain, CBS’s Loss?

If Mitt Romney were to win the upcoming presidential election, Columbia Business School (CBS) students would likely lose their dean, Glen Hubbard. Why? Hubbard is a top economic advisor for the Romney campaign, and whispers have been going around that a President Romney just might make Hubbard his Secretary of the Treasury. In an article published in yesterday’s New York Times, David Segal reveals Hubbard to be the man behind the Bush era tax cuts and Romney’s economic plan, while also delving into Hubbard as an academic who has blurred the line between business and research. Segal paints a portrait of Hubbard as a polarizing individual who is unpopular with some professors and almost did not win a second term as dean, but who ultimately relied on his corporate connections to save his job by drawing a $100 million donation from Henry Kravis of KKR. Who knows where the truth lies, but if you would like a rare glimpse into the life of a high-profile business school dean, the article is an interesting, if not slightly salacious, read.
