The Business and Finance program covers four major areas of research: Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing, with the possibility to specialize in several subfields. Our program is strongly centered in providing the necessary tools and skills to do insightful cutting-edge analytic research with a very strong empirical foundation. We provide a collaborative, supportive and intellectually stimulating research environment for students to start a solid academic career and to publish at the highest standards of the international scientific community.
