Professor of Finance & Director of Graduate Studies
Yale School of Management
Professor Spiegel teaches at the Yale School of Management, where his recent course offerings include Applied Financial Analysis, Finance, Corporate Finance II, and a Ph.D. course focusing on market microstructure and corporate finance. Before joining Yale, he taught at both Columbia University's Graduate School of Business and the Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley. His research covers a wide area of economics and finance, with publications in the areas of market microstructure, asset pricing, real estate, corporate finance, and experimental economics. His theoretical work has helped to explain stock market volatility and what factors lead to market breakdowns in which trading cannot take place. His empirical work has included the development of statistical methods that can estimate the impact of local characteristics on housing returns and for identifying when and if a particular mutual fund will generate above-market returns.
Professor Spiegel has served in a variety of editorial roles, including as the President of the Society for Financial Studies (2014 - 2017), and its Vice President (2011 - 2014), Executive Editor of Review of Financial Studies (2005 - 2011), Co-Editor of the Journal of Financial Markets (1997 - 2005), and Associate Editor of the Review of Financial Studies (1997 - 2000). He also sits on the editorial boards of the Critical Finance Review (2012 - present) and Finance Research Letters (2006 - present). From 2003 to 2005, he was a member of the NASDAQ Economic Advisory Board, and from 2001 through 2003 he was the Director of the Western Finance Association.
