Tilburg Center of Finance
Tilburg Center of Finance is an initiative of the Finance Research Group of Tilburg University, which aims to provide a platform where financial institutions meet with finance academia. The associated partner institutions benefit from high-level workshops, internships by top Tilburg master students, and low-threshold access to recent research developments inside and outside Tilburg University. TCF directly sponsors the Tilburg Finance research program and in particular its PhD programme.
The associated partners benefit from high-level topical bi-annual meetings with presentations from international researchers who are the leading experts in their field. Recently, these meetings have covered topics such as credit risk, retirement provision, dependence modelling, the financial crisis, hedge funds, fixed income developments, financial retail products, behavioural finance, long-term investment, etc. The internship topics covered by TCF have an even wider scope. Researchers in Finance at Tilburg University have benefited tremendously from close partner contacts. TCF has enabled its Finance PhD program to grow to an inflow of about 10 students per year and world-wide placements from Toronto to Melbourne and from Warwick to Chicago GSB.
