Welcome to UTU Finance
The purpose of this website is to provide information on financial research and teaching at the Turku School of Economics. The information here is for current and prospective students as well as for fellow academics and other interested parties.
Finance has become one of the most popular subjects at the Turku School of Economics in recent years, and more than thirty students choose to specialize in it each year. The number of faculty members focused on finance-related topics has also increased, and there are now seven of us in total. This has made it possible for us to expand our course offerings and has enabled new perspectives in both teaching and research.
Finance graduates from the Turku School of Economics have good career prospects, and are usually employed in demanding expert positions, such as portfolio managers, financial analysts and quantitative risk analysts, in both private and public sector.

Finance research at the Turku School of Economics covers various topics, such as asset pricing, corporate finance, risk management and mathematical finance. Our researchers are well networked and actively participate in academic discussion by publishing papers in reputable journals and attending conferences and workshops. We also host our own finance-specific seminar periodically, to which we invite both our own faculty members and researchers from other universities to present their new papers.
