科恩教授的学生分布在各大领域担任领导者的角色;他的学生还获得了哈佛大学等世界名校的教职。在本次专访中,科恩教授对未来参与京领藤校科研项目的学生提出了他的宝贵经验和建议。

Q1

京领新国际:您可以谈谈您最引以为傲的学生么?现在他们在哪些大学和机构学习和工作呢?

科恩教授:我很骄傲我有大量学生现在在商界、工业界,以及政府部门担任领导职务。他们现在工作的单位包括BlackRock(贝莱德集团,美国规模最大的上市投资管理集团)、Citadel (业界最成功也最难进入的对冲基金公司)、Amazon、Google、the Federal Reserve(美联储),以及哈佛大学、耶鲁大学、麻省理工学院、清华大学等。

我的学生,Dr. Trung Nguyen,她现在哈佛大学任教。她在哈佛本科时就是我的学生。在我的指导下,她获得了哈佛大学校级最佳毕业论文奖。她之后进入了斯坦福大学读博士,毕业后收到了众多顶尖大学的教职offer。她最后选择了哈佛大学商学院的助理教授的教职。

我的另一个学生,Dr. Johnny Kang,他现在在Citadel担任量化研究部门领导。他在我的辅导下完成他的博士论文架构选题,并在博士毕业后进入量化金融领域。他曾在AQR资本和BlackRock工作,现在在Citadel。他一直追求做到领域内更高的高度,并且在成为世界级别的投资组合经理后还在不停探索。

Q2

京领新国际:您对于金融领域的学生,您是如何告诉他们创新以及高科技的理念呢?

科恩教授:我很自豪我的学生来自于各种不同的背景,从很厉害的高中生,到非常出色的本科生、MBA、博士生,到顶尖的总裁、企业家、政府官员。我从各种不同的形式接触到我的学生。我通常使用案例研究的方法教学,并且对教学有很深入的研究。在哈佛大学的官方平台Harvard-X’s Platform上,我还教授哈佛学生线上课程。

Q3

京领新国际:什么促使您在金融领域应用创新的技术?

科恩教授:创新是每个领域的重大颠覆者。金融作为一个领域和学科,可以让世界上最好的点子获得他们所需的资金,从而发挥出他们对世界人民的真正价值。鉴于我在金融和技术系都任教职,以及我在两个领域都有深入研究,我很自然地需要在这两个领域交汇的部分进行研究。

我在金融和创新方面的研究得到了美国国家科学基金会(NSF)的很多资助,并获得了许多奖项和论文奖。

此外,我在这方面的工作发表在了多个顶级学术期刊上,并且还获得了《华尔街日报》、《纽约时报》、《华盛顿邮报》、《经济学人》、《财富》等顶级媒体的引用。我还为对冲基金公司做咨询,向政府提供金融和创新政策方面的建议,并且还作为专家出席美国国会。

所有这些活动完善并塑造了我的研究,以及我的观点,即深刻理解创新与金融之间千丝万缕的联系是多么重要。

以下为采访原文:

Kinglead:

Could you give examples of students for whom you are proud, and where they are now?

Prof.Cohen:

I am proud to say that I have had a large number of students who are now leaders in business, industry, and government. They work for agencies as wide as: BlackRock, Citadel, Amazon, Google, the CIA, the Federal Reserve, Yale University, MIT, Tsinghua University, etc.

Below are two examples:

Dr. Trung Nguyen – Professor at Harvard

Trung has been my student since her time as an undergraduate at Harvard University. Under my mentorship, she wrote a stellar Senior Honors Thesis, which won a Best Thesis Award across the entirety of Harvard University. She then spent a year working for me as a Research Associate under my National Science Foundation Grant, and matriculated the next year in the PhD Program in Accounting at Stanford University. Upon graduating, she had offers to join all of the top schools, and chose to return to become a colleague at the Harvard Business School, where she is now an Assistant Professor in the Accounting Department.

Dr. Johnny Kang – Head of Quantitative Research into Convertible Arbitrage at Citadel

Johnny came to me early in his PhD studies at Harvard University. It was immediately clear to me that Johnny had a love for quantitative finance, and quite a remarkable skillset for it. We crafted his dissertation around these ideas, and Johnny decided to go into quantitative finance directly after graduation with his PhD. He has since held senior positions at AQR Capital Management, BlackRock, and most recently at Citadel. He continues to gain stature in the field, and is a highly sought after portfolio manager globally in the space.

Kinglead:

How did you tell your students about innovation and high technology in finance?

Prof.Cohen:

I consider it an honor to teach students of all backgrounds – from very advanced high school students, to superb undergraduates, MBA students, PhD students, top executives, entrepreneurs, and government leaders. Given this diversity, I reach my students in all different forms. I have used the Case Method of teaching often, have done in-depth Research Mentoring, and even offer an online course through Harvard-X’s Platform in FinTech.

Kinglead:

What led to your passion in applying innovative technology within finance?

Prof.Cohen:

Innovation is a great disrupter in every field and finance as a field and discipline allows the world’s best ideas get the funding they need to unlock their true value for all of the world’s citizens. Given my joint appointment in both departments, and my deep research in both fields, it was a natural fit for me to research at the forefront of the intersection of the two.

My research in both finance and innovation has been supported by the numerous grants from the National Science Foundation, and has won numerous awards and best paper prizes.

Moreover, the work has been featured in top academic outlets and cited in top media such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, the Economist, Fortune, etc. I have also consulted with the top hedge funds in the industry, have advised government organizations in financial and innovation policy, and have testified as an expert witness in front of the US Congress.

All of these activities have refined and molded my research, along with my viewpoint as to how central it is to deeply understand all of the rich links between innovation and finance.返回搜狐,查看更多
