We provide an excellent research environment that includes a low teaching load (6 credit hours per year for the first 3 years, and then 6 to 9 credit hours per year based on individual preference), active seminar series, and subscriptions of the voluminous database widely used by finance academics/practitioners mostly with the WRDS platform and the Bloomberg terminal.
