Research department

Department of Finance

Welcome to the Department of Finance at Maastricht University where we are committed to high-quality teaching and research. We aim to combine, in both, academic rigour with real-world impact.

We educate at the Bachelor, Master, PhD and Executive level. Our teaching is research based, and reflects our experience that a successful finance professional is able to work with other disciplines and has a thorough knowledge of both theory and practice. 

The same applies to our research. We publish in top academic journals, but our definition of successful research goes beyond that: we continuously strive to create practical applications, and some of our key faculty members have turned their academic ideas into prospering businesses. This website provides you with all the information you need about our programs, faculty and research.
