Research in Corporate Finance

This proposal is broadly defined as empirical research in Corporate Finance. We invite candidates to indicate their preferences for a specific topic in this broader field. In this proposal we provide several directions for a specific topic and we present potential supervisors. In corporate finance, the financial and strategic decisions are studied from a financial economics perspective. Our group is specialized in empirical research in this field. The first topic in this field is financing/capital structure decisions including bank loans, private equity and start-up or venture capital financing. The second, related topic is financial intermediation. A third topic is financial history. The final topic is corporate governance, which includes shareholder rights and activism and managerial compensation issues.
