History and Mission
The Glucksman Institute, endowed by a grant from Lewis Glucksman, Stern MBA '51, offers faculty and student grants to support research on equities, bonds, futures, options, and other financial instruments and on the markets where they are traded.
Twenty-five of the highest-ranking first year MBA students are invited to apply for five Glucksman Fellow awards. During their second year, these Fellows receive cash stipends and are paired with full-time faculty members to conduct research projects. Participating faculty members receive unrestricted grants as well. The program exposes some top MBA students to the rigors of formal academic research in the practical areas of financial economics.
To recognize and promote excellence in research, the Institute also awards an annual $6,000 prize for the best research paper in finance by a Stern faculty member.
These programs, as well as the Institute’s other activities, are coordinated with the Salomon Center.
