Luigi Zingales, the Robert C. McCormack Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance at the Graduate School of Business at the University of Chicago, is the Mitsui Life Financial Research Center’s first Distinguished Visiting Professor-in-Residence at the University of Michigan Business School. He will teach the doctoral seminar in March and April.
Zingales, a member of the University of Chicago faculty since 1992, is a faculty research fellow of the National Bureau of Economic Research, a research fellow of the Center for Economic Policy Research and a fellow of the European Corporate Governance Institute. In addition to receiving several research awards and grants, Professor Zingales has published extensively in major economics and financial journals. He, along with University of Chicago faculty colleague Rajan G. Raghuram, co-authored Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists.
“Professor Zingales has done path-breaking work regarding theory of the firm, causes and effects of financial development, and corporate governance,” notes E. Han Kim, director of the Mitsui Life Financial Research Center and East Asia Management Development Center. “His teaching in the doctoral seminar will greatly improve the quality of education for our students. Faculty members also will benefit from interacting with him. Professor Zingales is a young rising star who already is making significant contributions to the field. His residency will help increase the Business School Finance Group’s visibility in our profession.”
