Former Managing Partner and Chairman of the Board,
Neuberger Berman

Opportunity is a word that crops up a lot when you speak with Larry Zicklin (BBA ’57), who in 1997 (and many times since) made an investment in Baruch’s School of Business, which now bears his name. That investment gave the school unprecedented opportunity of its own.
