About the Organisers
Yale University, founded in 1701, is one of the world’s great universities, attracting students from 108 countries. The mission of the Yale School of Management is to educate leaders for business and society. We are committed to understanding the complex forces transforming global markets and using that understanding to build organizations—in the forprofit, nonprofit, entrepreneurial, and government sectors—that contribute lasting value to society.
We aspire to be the most global among U.S. business schools, reaching the fast-growing frontiers of the global economy. Yale SOM led the effort to convene the Global Network for Advanced Management, which includes 22 top business schools throughout the world in 2012.
In the area of finance, with a world-renown faculty of scholars and practitioners, our International Center for Finance is a research nexus in financial economics. The Center’s fellowship is comprised of leading researchers both inside and outside of the Yale School of Management who work on key empirical and theoretical problems in financial economics, including asset pricing, corporate finance, investment management, market microstructure, behavioral finance, fixed income and derivatives, international financial markets, law and finance, and the history of financial markets.
Yale’s Executive Education initiatives focus on creating customized, transformational experiences for managers and executives from around the world. Yale takes special pride in crafting and delivering unique educational opportunities that feature access to the top minds in business—whether leading academic experts or practitioners who lead thriving organizations. We are delighted to join forces with EDHEC-Risk Institute to offer an extraordinary opportunity for executive education in specialty areas of finance and risk management.
