Many MBA applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand when they choose which business school to attend, but the educational experience itself is what 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 focus on Lubos Pastor from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
Still relatively young, Lubos Pastor (“Investments” and “Portfolio Management”) has already received considerable recognition for his research on the stock market and asset management and is featured among “The Best 40 B-School Profs Under the Age of 40” by Poets & Quants. Pastor’s work has been influential, earning him such high-profile accolades as the NASDAQ Award, the Goldman Sachs Asset Management Prize, and the Barclay’s Global Investors Prize, as well as Chicago Booth’s own Faculty Excellence Award for MBA Teaching in both 2009 and 2010. One student quoted in the Poets & Quants article said that “his witty style elevates classroom conversations and facilitates retention of core concepts.”
