Conduct research to develop a more robust financial system
Within the Department of Finance, our world-class researchers engage with and disseminate research to practitioners, policy-makers and academic colleagues to develop a more robust financial system.
The research interests of faculty span four core themes – Innovation and Asset Pricing, Corporate Finance, Finance and Risk Management, and Financial Analysis. They hold expertise within derivative pricing and hedging, quantitative risk management and asset allocation, financial econometrics, stochastic volatility modelling, credit risk modelling, catastrophe risk analysis, M&A and private equity.
You may also be co-supervised by faculty in other departments in the School, depending on your research interests.
PhD students on the Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) scholarship will undertake 150 hours of teaching assistant duties from year three of the programme. There will be opportunities for PhD students to engage in teaching activities within the Business School’s Finance Masters’.
