Welcome to Isenberg’s PhD program in finance. Our goal: to help students pursue careers in academia and beyond.
In the last 10 years, our students have published in premier journals that include the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics, and the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis. Many former students are now tenured or have tenure track positions in top academic institutions. Others have industry jobs with leading financial institutions.
Our students are successful because of our exceptional program. We offer:
- Research-oriented faculty who work closely with our students from day one. This hands-on mentorship helps prepare students to write compelling dissertations.
- Specific expertise in alterative investments and derivatives. This niche allows students to contribute to the growing areas of international security and derivatives market research.
- Outstanding research resources, including The Center for International Securities and Derivative Markets, a leading center for research in investment management located at Isenberg.
Our program is extremely supportive and collaborative. We give students the freedom to delve into the topics that most interest them. We seek students who are motivated to do high-level academic research that can be published in top quality academic outlets. We invite you to apply.
