Once a year, the EDHEC PhD in Finance Forum showcases the research produced by our PhD candidates and graduates to an international audience of academics and finance practitioners.



Become autonomous researchers and life-long innovators

Our experience running the PhD in Finance programme over the last fifteen years strongly suggests that experienced professionals with a strong academic background are capable of high-quality academic research with potential to make a difference in both academia and practice.

Each year, the EDHEC PhD in Finance Forum welcomes five of our PhD candidates and graduates who have thereby the opportunity to share their recent research findings. 



The sixth EDHEC PhD IN FINANCE FORUM will be held online on 6 June 2023. 


We are extremely grateful to Professor Neng Wang (Columbia University, NBER) for agreeing to be the Keynote Speaker for this Forum.  

We will be delighted to welcome you to this event.
