Paul Clancy | Visiting Senior Lecturer | Johnson
What are your research and teaching areas of focus?
I am a visiting lecturer of finance for Ithaca-based residential programs at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management.
What class will you be teaching this year?
I will be teaching the Corporate Finance Immersion practicum to first-year graduate students in the Two-Year MBA program. I am super excited.
What attracted you to the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business and to the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management, specifically?
I was drawn to the immersions. The immersions are a very unique and practical approach for advancing the knowledge of future business leaders. I am a practitioner, having worked in finance, strategy, and management for corporations for the last 35 years. Additionally, I was drawn to the Cornell culture—a serious university with a caring culture.
Have you adapted your research or teaching focus in any way because of COVID-19?
I am new to teaching. But, I expect Zoom will be a new experience in teaching—hopefully for not too long!
What are you most looking forward to during your first year at Johnson?
I am most looking forward to interacting with the students. I hope to help them in a small way by helping each student set a path forward.
What’s the best book you’ve read this year?
The best book I’ve read this year is Dear Shareholder: The best executive letters from Warren Buffett, Prem Watsa and other great CEOs. I highly recommend it for aspiring business leaders.
What do you do to recharge?
I recharge by going to the beach. I love it. All four seasons.
