Finance, Audit & Control

Teaching

The Finance, Audit-Control Department consists of approximately 40 permanent professors, 30 visiting professors and 65 sessional instructors with professional backgrounds from academia and private companies. Such diversity in the faculty profiles allows the Department to deliver a high standard of courses not only at a theoretical level, but also in dealing with real company issues.

Hence, the department’s pedagogy is based on solid theoretical fundamentals, case studies and practical work, while the students benefit from a broad curriculum in the different domains of Finance, Audit and Control. Each campus hosts a Financial Markets Lab equipped with leading Bloomberg/Reuters terminals which are one of the largest in terms of seats for students among French business schools.

Students who specialize in the Finance track often pursue careers with commercial and investment banks, asset management companies or private/public businesses.

The Department offers:

 

Research

Finance

  • Risk & Asset Management. Our research team deals with the valuation of financial assets, portfolio construction, market-timing and stock-picking strategies, high-frequency trading, market microstructure, estimation and management of the volatility and every type of financial risk.
  • Banking, Monetary Policy and Financial Regulation. This topic includes the implementation and the transmission of the monetary policy, the liquidity of the interbank market, the Basel regulatory framework and its evolution, stress testing, the impact of the financial crisis on the characteristics of bank loans.
  • Corporate Ownership Structure, which can be held in whole or in part by a family, private equity investors, the government, and the management. The analysis of the causes and the economic consequences of the ownership structure and its evolution are made in connection with the performance of the company, the governance structure and M&A activities.

Audit-Control

  • Audit and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) investigates the importance of audit committees and external auditors for the quality of financial reporting as well as the functioning of harmonized financial reporting initiatives such as under IFRS and U.S. GAAP.
  • Management Control Systems and Performance Management: analysis of the use and decision usefulness of management control systems in organizations and performance levers.
  • Corporate Governance examines the importance and functioning of governance mechanisms in both publicly listed and privately held companies, the composition and the role of boards of directors, the protection of minority shareholders, the role of institutional investors, and the governance specifics in financial institutions and family firms.
