Peter Moores Dean and Professor of Finance at Saïd Business School
Peter Tufano was appointed Peter Moores Dean and Professor of Finance at Saïd Business School on 1 July 2011 and is a Professorial Fellow at Balliol College, University of Oxford. He is a prolific scholar and course developer, a seasoned academic leader, a social entrepreneur, and an advisor to business and government leaders.
In 2000, he founded, and now chairs, a non-profit called Commonwealth (formally Doorways to Dreams Fund). This organisation works with partners to help low income households successfully manage their financial needs. Peter’s research on consumer finance, and the work of Commonwealth, contributed to the passage of the American Savings Promotion Act in December 2014, which removed federal barriers to sale of prize linked savings products in the US.
Prior to joining Oxford, Peter was a faculty member at the Harvard Business School for 22 years. During this time, he assumed a number of leadership roles, serving as department chair, course head, and Senior Associate Dean. He oversaw the school’s tenure and promotion processes, its campus planning, and he advised the University on financial and real estate matters. He was also the founding co-chair of the Harvard innovation lab (i-lab), a cross-university initiative to foster entrepreneurship.
Peter earned his AB in economics (summa cum laude), MBA (with high distinction) and PhD in Business Economics at Harvard University.
