      6 PhD Studentships in Finance
      EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre and Department of
      Accounting, Law, Finance and Economics
      EDHEC Business School
      Subjects: Business and Economics

      The PhD in Finance programme at EDHEC Business School is designed for
      the brightest and hardest-working individuals who are seeking faculty
      positions at leading educational institutions and senior executive
      careers in the financial industry. It is uniquely offered in two
      tracks: a "residential track" for high-potential graduate students
      who will hold part-time research or teaching positions at EDHEC
      Business School, and an "executive track" for high-level
      practitioners who will keep their full-time jobs.

      The key benefits of the EDHEC PhD in Finance are its outstanding
      faculty, its balance between course and dissertation work, its
      supportive research environment and close dissertation supervision,
      its talented and diverse participant body, and the first-rate
      industry relationships and global impact of the EDHEC Risk and Asset
      Management Research Centre. These combine to create the best
      opportunities for participants to develop their research expertise
      and to prepare for faculty positions at leading universities
      worldwide and top industry jobs.

      PROGRAMME STRUCTURE:

      The programme is designed to be completed in three years; course
      requirements will be fulfilled after two years. PhD students work
      individually with faculty members on dissertation topics selected for
      their academic and business relevance and in accordance with each
      student's research interests and professional goals.

      Programme prerequisites are economics and econometrics. PhD in
      Finance candidates on the "residential track" who may be lacking in
      these fields will have the opportunity to take supplementary graduate
      courses at EDHEC Business School during the first year of their
      doctoral studies. Core courses in Financial Economics, Corporate
      Finance, Continuous-Time Financial Economics and Empirical Methods in
      Finance offer PhD candidates sound training in financial theory and
      analytic methods so that they can take on a broad variety of teaching
      and research assignments. Elective research seminars expose
      candidates to the latest research advances in specific fields,
      providing them with opportunities to develop a specialisation and
      acquire additional skills necessary for their dissertation work.

      PROGRAMME FACULTY:

      The faculty is made up of specialists in finance, asset management,
      and financial modelling and brings together the school's senior
      economics and finance professors and affiliated professors from top
      research institutions the world over. The programme also draws on the
      resources and reputation of the EDHEC Risk and Asset Management
      Research Centre, Europe's premier centre for applied financial
      research.

      ADMISSIONS:

      Admission to the EDHEC PhD in Finance is highly selective. Normal
      entrance requirements include a master's degree (or equivalent) from
      an accredited school, college, or university (business management,
      economics, or science and engineering degrees are preferred); high
      CGPA in master's-level and upper-undergraduate coursework; excellent
      GMAT or GRE scores; English proficiency; evidence of research
      capability (master's thesis or research proposal); letters of
      reference; and a letter of intent. The application deadline for
      September admission is May 30th of the same year. However, PhD in
      Finance admissions are rolling: the earlier an application is
      received, the earlier it will be processed.

      FINANCIAL AID:

      Students on the residential track will work as research assistants at
      the EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre, as research
      assistants to senior finance faculty, or as teaching assistants (TA)
      in the department of accounting, law, finance and economics. In
      return for their part-time duties with the school, residential track
      participants will receive a full tuition waiver plus competitive
      RA/TA compensation. A total of six RA/TA positions are offered for
      PhD in Finance candidates entering the programme in September 2008;
      they will be filled as early as possible.
