Joint PhD Program in Financial Economics

The Joint PhD Program in Financial Economics was established in 2006 and is run jointly by the Finance dissertation area at Chicago Booth and the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics in the Division of the Social Sciences.

The aim of this program is to exploit the strengths of both sponsors in training PhD students interested in financial economics. Core economics training is valuable for students seeking to do research in financial economics, and advances in financial economics have important spillovers to other areas of economics. Students must satisfy program requirements for the PhD in both departments.
