The program promotes the pursuit of academic excellence providing an intellectual environment and a curriculum comparable with the top PhD programs in Europe and North America. The PhD program operates at the three Swiss Finance Institute campuses in Léman (Geneva/Lausanne), Lugano and Zurich in collaboration with the Universities of Geneva, Lausanne, Lugano (Università della Svizzera italiana), and Zurich, and the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).
“Swiss Finance Institute's PhD program is a unique opportunity to join a world class academic program in Switzerland with strong international ties. It offers great value on the academic job market and is quickly gaining momentum in the financial industry. The program gave me the opportunity to visit both Chicago Booth Business School and Hoover Institution at Stanford University as a PhD candidate, which contributed significantly in building my academic network.”
