Learn more about our research.

Our thought leader faculty publish research articles in top-tier journals, such as the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics, and the Review of Financial Studies. The Department of Finance is ranked 12th in the world by Arizona State University Finance Rankings based on the number of research articles published in the top four finance journals from 2014 to 2018, and ranked 15th in the world by the Shanghai Global Rankings based on the number of research articles published in a broad set of top-tier finance journals from 2014 to 2018.

We host a weekly External Speaker Seminar Series where a scholar from another university presents their research and the department actively discusses it.

We host a weekly Internal Speaker Seminar Series where a where an IU faculty member presents their early-stage research in an informal setting and the department actively discusses it.

Every year Indiana University joins with Notre Dame, Illinois, and Purdue to organize the annual Wabash River Conference. The unique format of this conference is that a junior faculty member presents their research, then it is discussed by a senior faculty member from a different university, and then all conference participants discuss it. The location of the conference rotates among the four universities.

This year the Kelley junior faculty are organizing a Kelley Junior Finance Conference, where all of the invited external faculty are themselves junior faculty at their universities.
