The center serves to promote timely, relevant and rigorous research in corporate finance that has established UNC Kenan-Flagler  as a premier institution in the field. The center promotes excellence in education, serving as a bridge between the theory and practice of corporate finance. Promoting the  development of a rigorous and practical corporate finance curriculum with an emphasis on current issues and innovative teaching strategies is an important objective of the center.

The center is a bridge between the theory and practice of corporate finance. The research strength of the faculty in our finance area contributes new knowledge in important and highly relevant issues in corporate finance, yielding new methods, data and results to academics and industry.  Such research consists not only of timely treatments of current issues, but also longer-horizon puzzles and problems in corporate finance.
