We are dedicated to continuing the proud heritage of value investing at Columbia Business School which began with Benjamin Graham teaching his first class at our NYC campus. Throughout the decades, numerous high profile investors have benefited from the value-based framework developed here at CBS. Through the dedication of the Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing , students benefit from the unparalleled Value Investing Program, whose instructors are among the most respected and accomplished investors in the industry. The club will continue to work closely with the Heilbrunn Center on many of the club's activities.
Along with all our officers, we look forward to contributing to another successful year for the Columbia Student Investment Management Association, the Heilbrunn Center, and CBS.
