Since 2008, EDHEC Business School has been offering an original PhD in Finance programme allowing outstanding professionals to acquire the background and skills required to conduct research and development projects that advance knowledge and practices in the financial industry.
The programme, which benefits from the world-class expertise of the EDHEC Business School centres of excellence, is taught by EDHEC Business School’s top economics and finance scholars and leading experts drawn from the world’s best institutions.
We have 37 PhD graduates to date who have gone on to author over 20 publications in top academic journals and leading professional reviews. To broaden the audience of this wonderful collection of original contributions, we decided to create a forum where industry professionals will have first-hand access to new and stimulating research about the functioning of financial markets and how it can be improved.
The EDHEC PhD in Finance Forum 2017 will take place on June 13, 2017 from 1.45pm in London
