Ben Graham Chair Inauguration

On Tuesday, the Department of Economics installed Professor Simon Board as the inaugural holder of the Benjamin Graham Centennial Chair in Value Investing. This new Chair helps strengthen our Value Investing Program, which teaches students how to value stocks, with a commitment to objectivity, rationality and a heavy dose of humility. In his talk, Professor Board discussed his research on “Competitive Advantage in the Information Age”. He was joined by Professor Darnell Hunt (Dean of Social Sciences), Dora Costa (Chair of Economics) and Professor Bill Simon (Co-Founder of the Value Investing Program).
