Academic Site & Blog


Finance and Financial Engineering

I received some questions regarding the fact that I have categories for almost all the core subjects in the graduate management curriculum (e.g. MBA) except for finance. Classically, the core functional areas of management are strategy, marketing, finance, operations management, human resource management, management information systems, and business law (primarily IP law and contract law).

I had intentionally left out finance because I felt a little bit uneasy talking about finance on a blog that is part of my personal academic site. I have now added the category and I will probably have some postings about financial accounting and managerial accounting in the future but I don’t plan to talk about investing, trading, or any financial engineering topics in this blog.

Unless I start a new area of research focused on applying statistical signal processing and time-series analysis to study some financial engineering problems I will use a separate blog for those postings:
