As teachers, we often face the challenge of helping MBA students understand important managerial issues where research is unsettled. This is one of a series of pieces written as a quick introduction to a controversial area which many of us have to touch upon in our courses: the diversification discount. Belen Villalonga has written an overview of some of the issues surrounding the diversification discount and assembled a selected bibliography on the topic. We then invited a small number of leading researchers and teachers in the field to comment on how they treat this topic in the classroom.
