Stuart Greenbaum served as Olin’s dean from 1995-2005. He has spent nearly half a century in the ‘industry’ of business education and shares his SWOT analysis in this video interview.
The son of a New York City meat dealer, Stuart Greenbaum graduated from Stuyvesant, one of Manhattan’s most selective public high schools. With degrees from NYU and Johns Hopkins, he pursued an academic and public service career as chairman of the Economics Department at the University of Kentucky, and on the staffs of the comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Reserve.
