Radhakrishnan Gopalan, professor of finance at Olin Business School, tragically lost his battle with cancer on December 6, 2022.
Radha was my dear friend, and his loss is devastating to our community. For those of you who knew Radha, I am sure you share in my sorrow. He was a prolific scholar, a brilliant mind and a passionate educator. Aside from his many professional accomplishments, he was a devoted father and husband who will be remembered for his warmth and kindness.
You can read the full tribute to Radha from Anjan Thakor, Interim Dean and John E. Simon Professor of Finance at Olin Business School, here.
To honor Radha and celebrate his legacy at Olin, our goal is to establish the Radhakrishnan Gopalan Memorial Scholarship. We invite you to support this meaningful and lasting tribute to Radha in one of the following ways.
Should we meet our goal, the Radhakrishnan Gopalan Memorial Scholarship will be awarded in the fall and we will again have the opportunity to celebrate his life and the profound impact he had on our community.
Thank you for joining us in this effort to honor Radha, our beloved friend and colleague.
