AQR Top Finance Graduate Award 2016

Center for Financial Frictions (FRIC) and the Department of Finance at Copenhagen Business School are proud to host the AQR Top Finance Graduate Award at CBS.    On May 30, 2016 you will have the unique opportunity to see the world’s most promising finance PhD graduates in 2016 present their research at CBS. These PhD graduates have been selected to win the AQR Top Finance Graduate Award and CBS has the honor of hosting a day of exciting research seminars.   At the event, you will be hearing talks about a range of exciting topics such as the effects of “revolving doors” on Wall St., for instance, when the rating agents and regulators change jobs to work for the very banks that they evaluate. Or “misallocations” of government contracts, for instance when a president appoints members of his network as CEOs of public firms and these CEOs then give government contracts to more expensive private firms from their own network. See more in the program on this website.
