  • Study published in The Financial Review names UC College of Business number one.

In the February 2009 issue of The Financial Review, authors Chan, Chen and Fung examined publication rates from 1990 to 2004 in 21 major research journals that are considered most  influential in the field of finance. The authors found the finance departments at Carnegie Mellon University and UC's College of Business to be number one, respectively, among 2,161 institutions in terms of per capita value-added research productivity in the top three and the remaining 18 finance journals.

In addition, the study ranked the UC finance department as number nine in terms of being the best at training PhD students, putting UC in the company of schools such as Purdue, Toronto, Indiana, Illinois, and NYU.

The ranking reflects the department's emphasis on providing a rigorous and relevant curriculum while maintaining research contributions to leading-edge knowledge, analysis and practice in finance.

The Financial Review, the official journal of the Eastern Finance Association, is a quarterly journal publishing original research in financial economics.
