Every year a small group of 10-20 highly qualified applicants from many countries are admitted to the PhD programme. For success in the programme, creativity, imagination, ability to provide deep insights and criticism, and a predisposition toward being independently motivated are significant aspects.
Admission to the PhD programme is formally administered by Programutvalget for doktorgradsutdanning (PDU - the Doctoral Programme Board), but the individual evaluation of faculty members from the particular research group within which an applicant wishes to pursue his/her education is important in the decision making process.
Finance is concerned with how individuals and firms interact through markets and contractual arrangements to sustain and create value, and to manage risks. The subfield asset pricing is concerned with how prices of real and financial assets are determined while the subfield corporate finance is concerned with the financing and investment behaviour of firms.
The finance group at NHH has about 20 full time faculty members. The department has a history of producing original, high quality research. Former faculty members include Jan Mossin, one of the originators of the Capital Asset Pricing Model, and Karl H. Borch, one of the founders of the economics of uncertainty. Current faculty members (including Nobel Laureate and NHH alumnus Professor Finn E. Kydland ) are dedicated to uphold this tradition.

Areas of Research
Current faculty interests cover both asset pricing and corporate finance. Areas of special interest include auctions, capital structure, consumption and portfolio choice, corporate governance, financial contracts, insurance, interest rates, IPOs, real options, and risk management.
Programme of study
The programme is suitable for highly motivated and talented individuals who would like to pursue an international career at universities and other academic institutions, or in public or private sector jobs. The programme has a strong international focus. The programme is relatively small, which ensures close interaction with the department's faculty members.
Our students have access to a very active research environment at NHH, which regularly publishes in the top international finance and economics journals, and moreover have a large number of visitors from other leading US and European institutions. Specialised courses offered by the Nordic Finance Network (NFN) complement our in-house course sequence. The entire program is conducted in English.
Currently, 30% of the PhD students at the Department of Finance and Management Science are international students. The department emphasises student-faculty interaction, including student participation in department seminars, faculty-student research collaboration, and faculty-student teaching collaboration.
Students are moreover expected to attend the Finance group's seminar activities throughout the programme. These include a weekly seminar with international guests, lunch seminars for faculty members and PhD students, as well as ad hoc seminars and workshops.
Careers and placement
Traditionally, finance PhDs from NHH have taken jobs in Norway, including academia, government agencies, and the finance industry. However, the finance area is currently involved in a push towards internationalisation, and hires actively on the international job market. Similarly, with respect to PhD placements, the finance area is aiming to place future students on the international market.
