The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business’s finance area faculty are focused on conducting rigorous and relevant research, educating future financial leaders at the undergraduate, graduate, and executive levels, and advising regulators on financial-policy-related issues. Our 24 tenure-track professors and eight teaching faculty drawn from industry study and teach a broad range of financial topics, with world-recognized expertise in derivatives, market microstructure, corporate finance, and asset management. Finance faculty members have been elected presidents of the American Finance Association, the Western Finance Association, and the Financial Management Association, and many serve as editors and associate editors at top academic journals.
Our faculty research is recognized by award-winning publications in the flagship finance journals and at top conferences. The finance area’s faculty are equally esteemed in the teaching domain, where they have won numerous teaching awards and consistently form relationships with students that extend well beyond the classroom and continue throughout students’ careers. Through teaching, research, consulting, and board work, our finance faculty bring the dual dimensions of research and practice into the classroom and the university.
