Faculty Testimonials

 

 

The biggest challenge for the traditional PhD students is to come up with new ideas with practical implications, whereas the EDHEC PhD students typically have many ideas originating from their work and their challenge is finding time to execute them.

Turan G. Bali, Robert Parker Chair Professor, McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University. Specialist in asset pricing, risk management, fixed income securities, and financial derivatives.

I found the students in my EDHEC course to be exceptionally motivated and talented. This is not surprising: the same traits that make one successful in industry, an eagerness to know more and the ability to absorb complicated ideas, are the same traits that lead to successful scholars. 

Jeffrey M. Wooldridge , University Distinguished Professor of Economics, Michigan State University. Specialist in panel data models, for the second time, he will teach an elective course in Microeconometrics, in January 2020.

At Duke, I teach in both executive education and doctoral programmes. Here the students are a nice mix of the two as they had both a great academic interest in finance and real experience from the field – this was perfect for me since I strive to do academic research that is in sync with the industry

Tim Bollerslev, Juanita and Clifton Kreps Professor of Economics in the Department of Economics and Professor of Finance at the Fuqua School of Business, Duke University, teaches Volatility Modelling, elective seminar

The second difference has to do with the very nature of the student population. It has been an absolute pleasure teaching students with a broad range of professional experiences and achievements.

Federico Bandi, PhD, Professor of Economics and Finance, Johns Hopkins University and EDHEC PhD in Finance Affiliate Faculty member
