Teaching

The Julis-Rabinowitz Center for Public Policy and Finance supports many teaching and research activities at the intersection of financial markets and public policy. 

For WWS Graduate Students

  • The Center begins its academic year with its graduate-level short course “Financial Markets for Public Policy Professionals,” which provides a framework for understanding financial markets and institutions through the perspectives of key industry, academic, and government leaders.

For PhD Students from Across the U.S. and Europe

  • Also at the beginning of each year, JRCPPF co-sponsors, with the Bendheim Center for Finance, the Princeton Initiative, a three-day intensive academic camp that brings together the best students, from across the country and Europe, who wish to write a PhD thesis on macroeconomic and finance to learn about the latest research on macroeconomic models with financial frictions.

For Princeton Undergraduates

  • The Center also supports the Public Policy and Finance Track within the Undergraduate Certificate in Finance (UCF), offered by the Bendheim Center for Finance. The certificate program provides Princeton undergraduates, concentrating in any department, the opportunity to earn a certificate that attests to their proficiency in the discipline of finance.

For all Princeton Students

  • There is also a wide range of courses offered to graduate and undergraduate students at Princeton that are interested in public policy and finance.
