This concentration is one of the three concentrations offered in the Frankfurt School's Ph.D. Programme.
We conduct scientific research projects aiming at publishing them in top journals in the fields of asset pricing, corporate finance, and financial intermediation. Frequently, these projects are pursued jointly with representatives of our stakeholders from the industry, the public, and governments and actively involve PhD students.
The prerequisite for a successful participation in research projects is a thorough training in theoretical and empirical topics in the fields of asset pricing, corporate finance and financial intermediation. Currently, the finance concentration consists of core courses and electives taught by resident staff.
Internationally renowned guest professors in their respective fields of expertise complement the curriculum. Students who pursue a PhD in finance at Frankfurt School have to complete the electives in addition to the required core courses.
