Professor David Bell
Managing Risk in Uncertain Times
During over thirty years on the faculty, Professor Bell has taught courses on managerial economics, risk management, marketing, retailing and agribusiness at both MBA and executive levels. Currently he is teaching the MBA Leadership and Corporate Accountability course (LCA). He chairs the annual Agribusiness Seminar.
In this VLS session, Professor Bell will draw on his decades of research in the analysis of risk--and a series of four books he has written, with Arthur Schleifer Jr. The books are entitled: Decision Making Under Uncertainty, Data Analysis, Regression and Forecasting, Risk Management and Decision Making Under Certainty. Professor Bell’s most recent publications include a series of papers dealing with the integration of economic and financial theories of risk. His best-known papers are concerned with the incorporation of psychological aspects of risk taking, such as regret and disappointment, into formal decision making systems.
Professor Bell is the George M. Moffett Professor of Agriculture and Business and is a Senior Associate Dean. He received his BA from Merton College at Oxford University and a PhD from MIT.
