I was walking to school via the Windsor one day last year when ran into Professor Cornelli. We had just finished the first finance exam, but they hadn’t been returned, yet. We’d been chatting for a few minutes when I asked her if there were any PHD opportunities in the Finance Department. Looking surprised, she said, maybe.
In which I replied, well I think I may have invented a new form of Finance during your exam and if it works out, maybe a PHD would be the good move. I called it Theoretical Finance during our talk and to no avail tried to convince her that just because my answers may not have been the same as hers, this didn’t necessarily mean they weren’t correct.
Something tells me that tomorrow or later this week in FEB I’m going to have to try the same tactic – Theoretical Valuations. Hell, that even has a ring – TV estimates – or and they love this in field, TVE.
I can see it now, I’ll stand up in front of all the other folks in class give my valuation and John, the professor, will just stare, shake his head and make a call on his cell phone. The next morning my email address goes from 2007 to 2009 and suddenly I’m arguing with Francesca about theoretical finance, again.
Wonder if there are any PHD positions out there?
