New topics for elective courses (and affiliate professors) have been continuously added to the PhD in Finance programme curriculum since its inception. The programme management balances methodological electives with conceptual ones to help students keep abreast of ongoing research debates as well as cutting edge research methodologies.
Participants must take a minimum of five elective seminars in their second and third years. PhD in Finance candidates will have the privilege of learning from the world’s leading specialists in these areas.
The 2018 topics were, Macro-Based Valuation Across Assets and Horizons, Microeconometrics, Financial Econometrics, International Finance and, Predictive Modelling and Forecast Evaluation in Financial Markets. The topics for 2019 may be found below:
Each elective seminar has a duration of 15 hours and is associated with a doctoral research workshop of one hour with questions and answers that allows the guest scholar to present and discuss his/her ongoing research.
