The son of a New York City meat dealer, Stuart Greenbaum graduated from Stuyvesant, one of Manhattan’s most selective public high schools. With degrees from NYU and Johns Hopkins, he pursued an academic and public service career as chairman of the Economics Department at the University of Kentucky, and on the staffs of the comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Reserve.

Before assuming the deanship at Olin, Greenbaum was a distinguished faculty member and academic administrator for 20 years at Northwestern University’s Kellogg Graduate School of Management. At Kellogg, he was the director of the Banking Research Center and the Strunk Distinguished Professor of Financial Institutions, and from 1988–92, he was Kellogg’s associate dean for Academic Affairs. Greenbaum is founding editor of the Journal of Financial Intermediation and has served on the editorial boards of eleven other academic journals. When he joined the faculty at Washington University, he was inducted as the inaugural Bank of America Professor of Managerial Leadership.
