Professorship of Finance

The research focus of our group lies in the field of empirical corporate finance. That means, we quantitatively examine how companies behave in product, capital, and labor markets and analyze how this behavior affects the various stakeholders of a firm. In our analyses we pay special attention to the actions of top managers. Our research has been published in some of the most prestigious finance journals as the Journal of Finance, the Review of Finance, the Critical Finance Review and has won several prizes. Our main research interests are: 


  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Labor and Finance
  • Behavioral Corporate Finance
  • Corporate Governance
  • Financial Intermediation


Our teaching focuses on the subjects of company valuation, M&A, and entrepreneurial finance, as well as seminars and theses in the areas of our research interests.
