Twelve fresh graduates for the EDHEC PhD in Finance programme

Written on 20 June 2019.


Twelve EDHEC PhD in Finance PhD candidates defended their thesis during the last two years, and early June 2019 in London, the graduation ceremony was held to celebrate their achievements.

The event welcomed family members and friends of the fresh graduates from all around the world, and featured speeches from Dr Michelle Sisto, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, EDHEC Business School, and PhD programme Director Professor Abraham Lioui.

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 their research in practitioner-oriented journals such the Journal of Commodity Markets and the Journal of Forecasting.

Since 2012 (the PhD programme started in 2008), 49 candidates have graduated. To date, they accumulate 31 working papers published in practitioners’ peer-reviewed journals and 4 publications in three academic finance journals, Economic Letters, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis and Journal of Financial Economics.

Staff, management and faculty extend their warmest congratulations to Majid Hasan, Vaidyanathan Krishnamurthy, Jasmine Z. Yu, Stefano Dova, David Mascio, Nicola Piazzalunga, Soner Kistak, Peck Wah Ng, Anmol Sethy, Marat Molyboga, Jonathan Harris and Hong Sherwin, hailing from Canada, China, India, Italy, Pakistan, Singapore, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom and USA.

Since inception, the main objective of the doctoral programme has been to train well-established senior professionals in cutting-edge research methods within different fields of Finance. EDHEC Business School thus expects to make an educated, real and useful impact on practices within the financial industry, confirming the EDHEC brand  signature “Make an Impact”.
