Before joining EDHEC in 2019, he was a Faculty member at Cass Business School, the Amsterdam Business School and HEC Lausanne. He received his PhD in Economics from New York University in 2002. Professor Schroth’s current research focuses on corporate liquidity management under long-term and short-term cash flow risks, and on activism and value creation.

His work has been recognized with awards in major research conferences and by top practitioners.
Former Director of the EDHEC doctoral programme, Professor Nikos Tessaromatis recently stepped down to focus on his research and teaching. He continues to be an active faculty member within the PhD in Finance programme, serving as dissertation advisor.
