Faculty & Research

The Program for Financial Studies supports research in all areas of asset pricing, corporate finance, and financial institutions. The program encourages the creation, translation, and dissemination of research from cross-disciplinary faculty members by coordinating access to computing and data resources; providing research support and assistance; sponsoring membership to professional organizations; overseeing

fellowships and grants; and facilitating the integration of research into the MBA curriculum. Interaction between students, program faculty, and the external community provides valuable insights that enable the program to support research activities that are relevant to academia, policy and regulatory authorities, and the financial industry.
