Financial Engineering & Risk Management
Financial Engineering is a multidisciplinary field drawing from finance and economics, mathematics, statistics, engineering and computational methods. Research in various asset classes including equities, fixed income, credit and mortgage-backed securities, commodity and energy derivatives and algorithmic trading.
Research for general principles, board of directors, leadership and succession planning, compensation, audit and risk, shareholders, and proxy advisory. The Key Concept is a collection of roadmaps to understanding the fundamental concepts of corporate governance. Each one examines a specific research focus area based on theory, empirical research, and data.
Corporate branding necessitates a different management approach. It requires greater emphasis on factors internal to the organisation, paying greater attention to the role of employees in the brand building process. The Research explores the implications of corporate branding for the management of internal brand resources. Present a model for managing brands through narrowing the gap between a brand’s identity and its reputation and, building on this, identify key factors that affect brand perceptions and brand performance. Find some of the mechanisms that may be used to facilitate greater congruence of brand perceptions within the brand team and communication of a brand’s identity to employees.
