Third PhD Summer School in Dysfunctional Finance
For the third year running Duisenberg school of finance organizes a summer doctoral program in finance. The aim is to teach cutting edge methodology in modelling the causes of dysfunctional financial markets.
DESCRIPTION: The school covers models where dysfunctional outcomes emerge from either behavioural distortions or incentive problems. Instructors are chosen among top researchers actively working in these areas. The school is aimed at offering tools to understand determinants of mispricing and excess risk creation, to incorporate them into valuation and risk choices, and ultimately to inform the debate on financial regulatory reform.
CLASSES: There will be four lectures of two hours on 14 and 16 June. On June 15 all students are invited to the DSF Workshop on Behavioral Finance (for more information on the Workshop see: http://www.dsf.nl/home/events/upcoming_events).
