Dear Colleague:

As part of the European Financial Management Association 2023 Annual meetings, June 28th, the European Financial Management journal will organize its annual seminar for advanced Finance Doctoral Students who are currently working on their dissertation. This intensive one day seminar is expected to be very valuable for the students who are interested to keep up with the recent developments in the finance literature and interact with leading scholars of the finance profession. Past participants include Professors Stephen Brown, Michael. C. Jensen, Hayne Leland, Martin Gruber, Richard Roll, Geert Rouwenhorst, Mark Rubinstein, Kent Daniel, Steve Ross, Lisa Meulbroek, Shmuel Kandel, Ian Cooper, Benjamin Esty, John Doukas, Harisson Hong, Heitor Almeida, Yakov Amihud, Avanindhar Subrahmanyam, Robert Korajczyk, Jeffrey Wurgler, Randall Morck, Daniel Wolfenzon, Malcolm Baker, Espen Eckbo, Alex Edmans, Tarun Ramadorai, Jay R.

Less than 20 students will be accepted to the program. All participating students will receive a Certificate of Participation.

To apply, a student (or his/her faculty advisor) should fill out an application here: https://www.efmaefm.org/0EFMAMEETINGS/EFMA%20ANNUAL%20MEETINGS/2023-UK/doctoralSeminar.php and attach a copy of your research paper and send the material to me by email before December 20, 2022. All applications will be reviewed, and invitations will be extended to student applicants by January 30, 2023.

The program's format consists of workshops featuring distinguished members of the finance profession, discussing corporate finance, asset pricing market micro structure, international finance, and financial institutions and intermediation, plus aspects of academic publishing and career development. Small groups of students and academic tutors will be formed to discuss each student's research paper or dissertation topic, methodology and intended contribution. The Seminar will end with its traditional Certification Ceremony and a Reception.

I hope that you will bring this to the attention of your students and that you will select an applicant from your Ph.D. program.

Sincerely,

John Doukas
