About the Department

Our finance group conducts high-impact and high-quality research in corporate finance, asset pricing, macro-finance, real estate, labor and finance, household finance and neuroeconomics. Our mission is to create knowledge that advances our understanding of the economic decisions made by investors, consumers, firms and policymakers.

Our program is quantitative in nature and students typically have a background in economics, engineering, mathematics, or statistics. We value past experience in research related to finance, economics, and/or real estate. Some students already have completed graduate work, but this is not a prerequisite.

Students in the Finance PhD Program benefit enormously from working with our world-class faculty who value working with PhD students and have designed many courses to specifically meet their needs. We are committed to providing you with the benefits of training and true mentorship in our collaborative environment. You will have a faculty mentor assigned to you, and you will learn the research process as you work closely with finance professors on their current research. Close collaboration your classmates offers additional mentoring opportunities.

With the knowledge, skills and network you develop at UNC Kenan-Flagler, we expect you to graduate ready to succeed as a researcher at a top business school.
