Barney Hartman-Glaser joined the faculty of the UCLA Anderson School of Management as an assistant professor of finance in 2013. He has been the research directory of the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate since 2016 and an associate professor of finance since 2020.

Prior to joining UCLA Anderson, Hartman-Glaser was an assistant professor of finance at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. His research focuses primarily on the effects of contracting frictions, such as adverse selection and moral hazard, and on mortgage markets and corporate finance. He also conducts research on housing markets.

A native Californian who hails from a family of academics, Hartman-Glaser was influenced early on to pursue a career in academia. He credits his father — a sociology professor at the University of California, San Francisco, and a real estate finance practitioner — with his interest in finance and real estate, admitting that he “learned how to use a spreadsheet before I could read.”

Hartman-Glaser’s research has been published in top finance and management journals and has gained widespread recognition. He is the recipient of the 2020 Brattle Group Prize in Corporate Finance (first place) for an article published in the Journal of Finance, and the 2019 Jensen Prize in Corporate Finance (second place) for an article published in the Journal of Financial Economics. His research on the effect of IPOs on house prices has been frequently mentioned in the national media.

In the classroom, Hartman-Glaser shares his enthusiasm for finance with his students by fostering an engaging and collaborative learning environment. He places equal priority on his students’ developing a fundamental conceptual understanding of finance and the practical skills that will help them advance their careers. 

When not teaching or conducting research, Hartman-Glaser might be spotted in any of Southern California’s outdoor playgrounds, where he could be surfing, cycling or backcountry skiing.
