Each year, approximately 20 Columbia MBA students are accepted into a semester long seminar called: Advanced Investment Research – The Analyst’s Edge. The Class was developed and is taught by John Griffin and David Greenspan (MBA ’00) of Blue Ridge Capital. I can honestly say that spending a semester in this class, which was visited by David Einhorn, Bill Ackman, and Ian McKinnon, among others, created an experience that would be quite difficult to match.
Our final stock pitch was delivered in the boardroom of Tiger Management to legendary hedge fund manager, Julian Robertson. This was just another of the many once-in-a-lifetime experiences provided by Columbia Business School and The Heilbrunn Center for Graham and Dodd Investing.
Below is a 1998 interview of Julian Robertson by Charlie Rose:
