12th Annual Columbia Investment Management Conference Friday, February 13, 2009Columbia University Columbia Business School has occupied an important place in the history of asset management. From the seminal works of Benjamin Graham and David Dodd to the prestigious Heilbrunn Center under the leadership of Professor Bruce Greenwald, CBS has provided an intellectual home base for the philosophies of value investing. Alumni of Columbia's program include Warren Buffett '51, Leon Cooperman '67, Mario Gabelli '67, Glenn Greenberg '73, Arthur Samberg '67, and William von Mueffling '95. The Columbia Investment Management Association builds from its philosophical foundation to consider the complexity of today's investment theory and practice.
