Graduate School of Business (GSB) economics professor Susan Athey Ph.D. ’95, has pushed back against second-year Stanford Law School (SLS) student Conner Brown’s claims that she made false statements disparaging Bitcoin in a January guest lecture.
Stanford has been ranked number one on digital currency news site CoinDesk’s first list of the top 10 “blockchain universities and colleges” in the United States.
Steve Ballmer, ex-CEO of Microsoft, will be teaching a course at the Stanford Graduate School of Business in the fall. Ballmer will co-teach a class called “Leading Organizations” along with The Economics of Technology Professor Susan Athey.
Athey, who has worked with Microsoft to develop new theories on the effect of the Internet on advertising, news consumption and more, is one of the leading experts in the field. Her research on the convergence of big data and economics, moreover, has even shaken up the way the web works.
