PhD scholarships in Finance 2019
The Department of Finance at the Copenhagen Business School invites applications for PhD scholarships in finance. Several scholarships are potentially available within any area of finance and within the field of financial frictions. The application process is a joint process, and all applications will be considered for all types of scholarships.
Several scholarships are within the field of financial frictions and the students will be associated with the Center for Financial Frictions (FRIC), which is a Center of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. Financial frictions are costs or impediments in connection with financial transactions, for example due to transactions costs, borrowing constraints, credit risk, capital requirements, or asymmetric information.
All scholarships initially cover a three-year period of study. Extended funding is available for successful candidates who wish to pursue an academic career. PhD students are required to teach. The teaching responsibilities of the Department include undergraduate and graduate teaching in finance and statistics.
About the program
The three-year PhD program at CBS allows students to conduct research under the supervision of CBS professors, supported by research training courses. The program is highly international, and students are expected to participate in international research conferences and to spend time abroad as a visiting PhD student. Students are also expected to actively participate in the Department’s research activities, such as seminars and conferences organized by the Department.
PhD students from the Department of Finance have become researchers at leading universities and business schools, such as University of Chicago (Booth), Bocconi University, BI Oslo, UVA Darden School of Business, WU Vienna University, Cass Business School, London Business School and the EPFL in Lausanne, and at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, at Goldman Sachs, at Cornerstone Research and in leading Danish financial institutions.
Copenhagen Business School has a broad commitment to the excellence, distinctiveness and relevance of its teaching and research programmes. Candidates who wish to join us should demonstrate enthusiasm for working in an organisation of this type.
The starting date is normally September 1, but may be agreed upon individually.
