Columbia Business School has appointed Surya N. Mohapatra, former chairman and chief executive officer of Quest Diagnostics Incorporated, as its newest Executive in Residence. With more than 30 years of broad experience in the health care industry, including cardiovascular research, diagnostic imaging, and diagnostic testing, Mohapatra will provide students with an additional connection to a healthcare industry expert.
The Executives in Residence Program at Columbia Business School, among the first of its kind when it was founded nearly three decades ago, integrates senior executives into the life of the School. Executives in Residence teach classes, participate in student-run conferences, and organize informal activities for students with common interests.
“Dr. Mohapatra and his considerable experience in health care will help facilitate and strengthen collaboration among Columbia Business School and other schools in medical science, engineering, and public health,” said Dean Glenn Hubbard. “We are excited to welcome him as our newest Executive in Residence.”
