The goal of Finance PhD Events is to support Finance PhD Students throughout their doctoral studies by organizing events that will help them become better researchers and prepare themselves for the academic job market. There are two main events:
Finance PhD Pitch Perfect - Through this event, Finance PhD students will be able to present their raw ideas and receive feedback from assigned Coaches at an earlier stage of their research. Students can submit their ideas until November 20, 2020 within the following areas: Empirical CF; Theoretical CF; Empirical AP; Theoretical AP; Banking/Fintech; Household Finance and Behavioral Finance. The first sessions will be held online on January 29, 2021.
By joining Nova SBE Faculty (Professor Miguel Ferreira, Professor Fernando Anjos and Professor Irem Demirci) and other European Professors as Coaches (Bruno Biais from Toulouse School of Economics; Burton Hollifield from Tepper School of Business; Camelia Kuhnen from UNC Kenan-Flagler; Clemens Sialm from University of Texas at Austin; Heitor Almeida from University of Illinois; João Cocco from London Business School; Norman Schürhoff from Swiss Finance Institute and Richard B. Evans from University of Virginia), Finance PhD Students will have the opportunity to develop their rough ideas into research papers.
Finance PhD Final Countdown - Dedicated to Finance PhD Students that will be on the upcoming job market. Students will present their JMPs and receive more detailed feedback from Coaches at a later stage of their research before submitting their packages. The goal is to help students prepare themselves for the job market and coach them on: How to write an academic paper? How to present a JMP? How to frame the research question? How to answer the questions in a job market seminar?
Finance PhD Final Countdown also aims to facilitate potential collaboration between Coaches and students, as Coaches will advise students about how to come out of the job market successfully and how to produce high-quality publications.
More information about applications and sessions will be available on the webpage soon.
