The Business School has developed close links with the vibrant financial industry in Edinburgh to drive growth in our corporate finance theme.
This theme exemplifies the School’s focus on fairness and enhanced performance, such as the effect of CEO’s cultural heritage on performance under pressure and boardroom gender diversity and risk.
Collaboration is key in this theme, whether with elite finance schools such as: University of Chicago, Princeton, NYU Stern School of Business, and Frankfurt School; with government agencies, such as Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and Bank of Spain; and we have also developed a close relationship with the Chartered Institute of Bankers.
