On this week’s Masters in Business radio podcast, we speak with Robert Johnson, president of the American College of Financial Services, and formerly a senior managing director of the CFA Institute.

You may not be familiar with Johnson, but his work has been influential throughout the world of modern finance, largely through advocating for improved education. A book he co-authored, "Strategic Value Investing: Practical Techniques of Leading Value Investors," was picked by Warren Buffett to be sold at Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting this coming weekend.

The full podcast can be downloaded at iTunesSoundCloud and Bloomberg.com. Earlier podcasts can be found on iTunes and SoundCloud, and at Bloomberg View.
