Structure of the programme
The 4-year Aalto Finance PhD programme resembles the US-style programme. One and a half years at the beginning of the studies are devoted mostly to intensive course work that is followed by research for the PhD dissertation. Aalto Finance PhD students follow the course curriculum of the Graduate School of Finance (GSF), the national PhD programme in Finance. The GSF offers yearly 5-7 core PhD Finance courses. In addition, students take Economics PhD courses offered by the Finnish Doctoral Programme in Economics (FDPE). The local courses are complemented by intensive Finance PhD courses organized within the Nordic Finance Network (NFN), which is a collaborative Nordic network for research and doctoral training among the Finance departments in Nordic Countries. All teaching in the PhD programme is in English and there are no tuition fees.
New students will be accepted once a year. Application period will open on November 5, 2019 and the deadline for applications is January 23, 2020.
