Dr. Greg Bauer is the Associate Dean, Strategic Partnerships and full Professor at the Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics. Prior to joining Lang, Dr. Bauer was the Michael J. Barclay Alumni Professor and former Associate Dean of Full-Time Programs at the Simon Business School, University of Rochester. In that role he was responsible for admissions, academic affairs and career advice for the full-time MBA, MS in Finance, MS in Accounting, MS in Business Analytics and MS in Marketing Analytics programs. He created the Simon Integrated Student Experience and guided the development of the STEM MBA option. As a result of these efforts, the Simon Full Time MBA program was honoured as the “MBA program of the Year” in 2018 by Poets and Quants. The program moved up 16 places in one year on the 2019 Bloomberg Businessweek ranking to reach #29 overall and #4 for learning

Bauer is a five-time winner of the Superior Teaching Award from the Simon MBA program and a multiple winner of awards from the Executive MBA program. In addition to teaching Macroeconomics, International Finance, and Capital Markets courses at the Rochester campus, he has developed courses on international financial markets for executive students in India. He helped develop the Simon MS Wealth Management program and delivered the Financial Markets and Investment Management course in Switzerland, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Prior to rejoining the Simon School in a full-time capacity in 2017, he was the Senior Research Director in the Financial Markets Department of the Bank of Canada. His research has contributed to important public policy debates on: the likelihood of house price corrections; the interaction of monetary and financial stability policies; and, the limitations imposed by financial markets on the ability of central banks to conduct conventional and non-conventional monetary policies. His work received attention in the Canadian press and had an impact on the inflation-targeting agreement between the Bank and the Government of Canada. He has published scholarly articles in the Journal of Financial Economics, the Review of Economic Studies, the Journal of Econometrics, the Journal of International Money and Finance, and the International Journal of Central Banking.

Bauer received his doctorate from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. He holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.
