Ph.D. in the Finance Area

The Finance Ph.D program is designed to train students for a career as Professors of Finance at top academic research institutions. The curriculum is designed around a challenging course of study in both the theory of financial economics and in cutting edge empirical work.

Ph.D students work closely with a distinguished faculty that is among the most productive and highly regarded in the world. Our program is small enough that each Ph.D student gets personal attention and close mentoring. Students move quickly to the frontier of knowledge and conduct their own research at an early stage. 

We offer a very competitive financial aid package that includes a tuition waiver and a generous stipend. Admission to the program is competitive. Applicants should demonstrate evidence of strong analytical skills, intellectual curiosity, and the self-discipline needed for conducting original research.
