MIT Sloan School of Management Holds Fireside Chat Honoring Stewart Myers

MIT Sloan School of Management recently held a fireside chat with Stewart Myers in honor of his 50th year as a leader in the field of finance. The celebration brought together friends and colleagues to highlight Professor Myers’ role in shaping his field and the implications for the future of corporate finance.

Moderators included Franklin Allen, Professor of Finance and Economics at the Imperial College London; Richard Brealey, Emeritus Professor of Finance at the London Business School; and Larry Kolbe, Principal Emeritus at The Brattle Group. The program also featured introductions by David Schmittlein, Dean of MIT Sloan School of Management, and Antoinette Schoar, the Michael M. Koerner (1949) Professor of Entrepreneurship and Faculty Head of the MIT Sloan Finance Group.

Professor Myers is the Robert C. Merton (1970) Professor of Financial Economics at MIT Sloan and a principal at The Brattle Group. His research has transformed the field of corporate finance, and his textbook Principles of Corporate Finance (co-authored by Richard Brealey), remains the standard for corporate finance courses worldwide.
