PhD in Finance participants receive sneak preview of forthcoming research

Right from the very first week of the three-year PhD in Finance programme at EDHEC-Risk Institute, participants have access to the doctoral research workshop at which core and affiliate faculty present and discuss their ongoing research.

The series gives participants exposure to original, unpublished, work covering a wide variety of research themes. As such, the series furthers participants’ knowledge of current research and recent advances and helps them identify issues to investigate further in the context of their dissertation work. As PhD candidates contribute actively to academic research presentations, they become familiar with the standards and dynamics of an exercise that they too will have to perform.

The doctoral research workshops are held in London, Nice and Singapore – all sessions since programme inception are accessible through the programme’s e-learning platform.

Over the course of 2013, the series will feature a record number of presentations by leading scholars on the PhD in Finance faculty as follows:
