Financial Economics Ph.D. Program
The Department of Economics and Finance at the University of New Orleans offers a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Financial Economics. The innovative curriculum incorporates both contemporary economic and financial analysis into a program that reflects the growing integration of these two disciplines. It is one of the first programs to formally respond to the substantial demand for financial economists in research and policy making positions in universities, business and government.
The degree requirements for finance give an overall view of courses required to complete the degree program.
