EDHEC PhD in Finance, 2016 Graduation Ceremony on the London Campus
Written on 30 September 2016.
Fifteen PhD candidates successfully defended their thesis during the last year, and late September 2016 in London, the graduation ceremony was held to celebrate their achievements. The event welcomed friends and family members from all around the world and featured speeches from Professor René Garcia and Dr Jean Boivin, Head of Economic and Markets Research of the BlackRock Investment Institute.
The research work of these new PhD graduates is very diverse and brings new insights or creative solutions for the financial industry. Some of the graduates have already published (or publication is forthcoming) their research in practitioner-oriented journals such as Applied Economics, Journal of Asset Management, Journal of Fixed Income and Journal of Portfolio Management.
Since 2012 (the PhD programme started in 2008), 37 candidates have graduated. To date, they accumulate twenty working papers published in practitioners’ peer-reviewed journals and four publications in three academic finance journals, Economic Letters, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis and Journal of Financial Economics.
