Research Requirements

Students must work as research assistants for the first three years of the program in order to receive financial support and be prepared for their dissertation.

When they are at the dissertation stage, Ph.D. candidates are expected to actively dialogue – both formally in seminars and informally – with other area members within the confines of their dissertation. In addition, students should plan to attend or present their research at well-known academic conferences such as the Northern Finance Association, the Financial Management Association, the American Finance Association and the Western Finance Association. They may also be asked to help review manuscripts and journal articles by editors and associate editors.

Students are required to teach one finance course before they go on the job market. This will help students to accumulate teaching experience which is an important ability to acquire in order to have a successful academic career.
