'Office Hours' With Dean Emeritus Bob Bruner, Presented by Darden Ideas to Action

Friday, April 7, 2023 at 10:00 AM until 11:00 AMEastern Daylight Time

Join Darden Admissions and Dean Emeritus Bob Bruner for a faculty thought leadership webinar series for prospective and admitted Darden students.

As a financial economist, Bruner is best known for his research on mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance and financial panics. Recently, his writing and teaching have focused on three subjects. The first regards the causes, dynamics, and consequences of financial crises. His second area of current work regards the intersection of democracy and capitalism and the frictions associated with the interactions of the two systems. Finally, he studies and writes about the leadership attributes of the U.S. presidents.

As dean of the Darden School from 2005 to 2015, Bruner chartered or led a series of initiatives that prompted the revision of Darden's residential MBA program, including the launching of Darden's Executive MBA formats. In 2012, Poets & Quants and CNNMoney/ Fortune named him "Dean of the Year."
