In fall 2012, there will be nine new professors on staff at the Haas School of Business at Berkeley. Toby Stuart, who worked previously as a professor at Harvard Business School, will be a Haas professor and faculty director of the Lester Center for Entrepreneurship. For the past two years, Stuart has been a visiting professor at Haas.
Ross Levine, a former professor at Brown University, will be a Willis H. Booth Chair in Banking and Finance. Levine chose Haas because he was “impressed with the school’s emphasis on excellence — in teaching, in mentoring students to reach their potential, and in conducting relevant, influential research.”
New junior faculty hires include Assistant Professor Alexander Nezlobin from NYU Stern and Assistant Professor Brett Green from Northwestern Kellogg. There are five new assistant professors, as well: Sameer B. Srivastava, Jose A. Guajardo, Yuichiro Kamada, Reed Walker, and Andreea Gorbatai.
