Our specialty is Corporate Finance and Corporate Governance. In particular, we are focusing on how corporate investment behaviors and financing decisions affect corporate value, and what kind of corporate governance lowers cost of capital and is effective for sustainable growth. We are currently interested in topics such as mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructurings, capital budgeting, and large capital investments for growth opportunities. We also focus on research perspectives of “cultural difference” and “law and finance” to deal with integration of global economy, and “behavioral finance” to test market efficiency and rationality of managers. Since research goal of our laboratory is to provide effective solutions for issues that corporate managers and policy makers face, we emphasize empirical approach to analyze the underlying issues. To achieve the goal, we welcome any students who have both analytical skills and strong commitments to the real world.
