The PhD program in finance aims to train innovative scholars, able to produce top-quality research in finance. To achieve this objective, students need to develop deep understanding of contemporaneous finance and related fields, demonstrated through the successful completion of required courses and a comprehensive exam. Further, they need to show their skills in producing original research through a second-year paper and a dissertation.
The second-year paper must be presented in the Finance Department brown bag seminar before the end of the third year in front of the Faculty.
Students are required to participate in the academic activities of the finance department (seminar, brownbag, conferences) and they will have the possibility to cooperate with the faculty both at the Paris and the Singapore campuses.
In this concentration, students can specialize in one of the following subfields:
- Asset pricing and investments
- Corporate Finance
- Financial Econometrics
- Risk Management
