Faculty members from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business today began a partnership with Bloomberg News in which they will write a weekly op-ed column called Business Class, which will be published every Friday as part of Bloomberg View, a new opinion section of its website.
The inaugural column, “Make Money Market Funds Go to Market,” was written by Luigi Zingales, Robert C. McCormack Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance. http://www.igmchicago.org/business-class/business-class-insights-on-markets-money-and-public-policy-from-chicago-booth-faculty.
Other regular contributors will include influential Chicago Booth faculty members in a variety of disciplines.
“Our faculty have been innovators in many respects including winning the first Nobel Prize given to a business school professor, starting the first business Ph.D. program and executive M.B.A. program, and founding the first scholarly business journal, so we are very excited to add to this list of firsts by teaming up with Bloomberg News to create the first weekly column by a business school’s faculty,” said Sunil Kumar, dean of Chicago Booth.
“Our Initiative on Global Markets aims to improve public dialogue about how these markets work, their effects, and the way they interact with policies and institutions. The unparalleled reach of Bloomberg News will greatly improve our reach,” said Kumar who also is a professor of operations management at Booth.
Bloomberg View’s Business Class debuts on the redesigned Bloomberg.com that launched this week, reaching more than 13 million visitors each month, and on the Bloomberg Professional service, which reaches more than 300,000 influential business and finance professionals around the world.
Business Class columns by Booth faculty will also be available every week on the blog of Chicago Booth’s Initiative on Global Markets at www.igmchicago.org.
