Financial economics encompasses micro-investment theory, economics of uncertainty, the role of financial markets and institutions, the regulation of financial products, firms and markets, the theory of the firm, and corporate governance. The field is unique among the social sciences in that it has had a direct and significant influence on practice: The impact of the efficient market hypothesis, portfolio selection, risk analysis, and contingent-claim pricing on capital budgeting and money management is clearly evident. This impact is based both on developments of theory and on empirical tests of hypotheses that are made feasible by a large and increasingly accessible body of relevant data.

The Finance faculty includes leading researchers in their respective areas, publishing in such notable journals as the Journal of Finance, Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Financial Economics, and Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis. Faculty members are involved in a number of national organizations, serving as consultants, collaborating with research, and holding corporate board memberships.
