About Finance and Business Economics at Marshall

Faculty and students in the Finance and Business Economics Department examine economic decision-making and the role of markets in the allocation of real and financial resources. Using perspectives from both finance and economics, our faculty illuminates issues in corporate finance, investments, speculative and financial markets, real estate, insurance, banking, industrial organization, taxation, and in the making of related public policies. We place equal emphasis on primary theory and its application to the real problems that practitioners face when doing business.
