Doctoral Program Placements

To land positions at top research universities, PhD graduates must have solid research and teaching skills. Our doctoral students learn from the best: Their mentors are faculty members who have received academic honors that include chaired professorships, editorships of distinguished journals, and memberships of editorial boards of prominent journals.

Our students conduct research alongside these faculty members and other students, and they learn to teach from great teachers. As such, our finance doctoral students are consistently placed in impressive positions.
