    Thursday, Aug. 19, 2010 9:52 AM

    A recent paper by Meir Statman, the Glenn Klimek Professor of Finance, has been named a "Top Ten" by the Social Science Research Network, according the organization's chairman, Michael C. Jensen. "The Cultures of Risk Tolerance" was among the 10 most downloaded papers last week.

    Statman, whose work in behavioral finance is recognized around the world, has published widely, and is often quoted in the business press as well as academic journals. His scholarship has won many accolades, including the Moskowitz Prize for best paper on socially responsible investing (2008), and three Graham and Dodd Scroll awards, among others.

  •  Undergraduate business program at Santa Clara University's Leavey School of Business among top 40

    Friday, Mar. 5, 2010 12:29 PM

    The undergraduate business program at Santa Clara University is #39 in the nation, according to “Best Undergrad B-Schools” rankings released last night by Bloomberg BusinessWeek magazine.

    Based on surveys of students, recruiters, and data such as test scores and starting salaries for new graduates, the editors assessed more than 100 undergraduate programs across the U.S. 

    This year, Leavey School of Business rated straight “As” from the editors in the three categories they measured: teaching quality, facilities and services, and job placement. 

    Noting the Leavey School’s emphasis on engagement with real world issues, one student surveyed said “Any school can teach you how to climb the corporate ladder, but I’ve come out of this business program with an acute awareness of where my talents and responsibilities intersect with the world’s needs.”

    School administrators agreed. “The BusinessWeek survey highlights what Silicon Valley has known for quite awhile: Santa Clara University business graduates are uniquely prepared to add value to any organization they join,” said Drew Starbird, interim dean of the Leavey School of Business. “Our graduates have mastered theory and practice from a global perspective founded on Jesuit ethical traditions. They take their skills into the workplace ready to create purpose as well as capital.”

    This is the fourth consecutive year the Leavey School of Business undergraduate program has been ranked by the magazine. The “Best Undergraduate Business Schools” issue will be on newsstands on Friday, March 5, 2010.
