The Simon community is small by design. In fact, it is the smallest of the top-ranked business schools, which offers students the opportunity to work closely with world class scholars. Simon doesn’t require a specific undergraduate major or a minimum work experience; scholars are free to choose from any of our six research focus areas.

Finance at Simon Business School deals with problems of corporate financial policy, individual consumption-investment choices, and capital market equilibrium in an uncertain environment. The principles of price theory, mathematics, and statistics provide the basis for analyzing these problems. Close attention is given to investor-management behavior induced by utility maximization, how this behavior is affected by information, regulation, and contractual arrangements, and the implications of these considerations for systematic, measurable phenomena in financial markets. The methodological approach taken at Simon places strong emphasis on formal modeling of these problems and empirical testing of alternative theories.
