Cambridge Judge Business School is a highly ranked modern business school, located at the heart of an 800-year-old University, with an ambitious and collegial faculty in the Finance group.

Group members regularly publish in leading international journals (such as the Journal of Finance, the Journal of Financial Economics, the Review of Financial Studies) across many areas of corporate finance and asset pricing. The group is international, and members have extensive research networks with academics from other leading institutions throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
