Global Financial Markets Center
The Global Financial Markets Center facilitates research, education, and publication that broadens inquiry, dialogue, and debate into the operation of capital and financial markets beyond traditional academic boundaries, bridging the gap between theory and practice. The center’s affiliated faculty, from the Duke University School of Law, the Fuqua School of Business, and the Department of History, focus their research, scholarship, and teaching on issues of law, business, and regulation (including finance and financial accounting and reporting) that impact capital and other financial markets. Collectively they possess a wealth of real-world experience in such areas as corporate governance, securities and banking regulation, administrative law, and economics.
The center sponsors symposia and scholarship; works collaboratively with scholars, professionals, industry leaders and participants, governmental and regulatory authorities, and other policymakers; prepares students for careers in business and law, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels; and develops relationships with foreign universities.
