Academic content, research productivity, and tenure
Journal of Economics and Finance
This study examines the influence of a Finance doctoral program's academic content on the research productivity of the graduates at the time of the tenure decision. The results of this investigation show that a Finance program's academic content has no influence on the total number of publications of program graduates, but finds a significant relationship between academic content and graduate's records of publications in top finance journals by the time of the tenure evaluation. More precisely, doctoral programs requiring more mathematically oriented classes such as Continuous Time Finance and/or Stochastic Calculus produce graduates who have a better record of publication in top finance journals at the time of tenure than those graduating from programs without these requirements. © Springer Science + Business Media, LLC 2008.
