John Broussard will research European stocks in Finland under Fulbright Award.

John Broussard, an associate professor of finance at the Rutgers School of Business–Camden, has been awarded a prestigious Fulbright Award that will allow him to perform research at the Hanken School of Economics in Finland during the fall 2016 semester.

The Rutgers University–Camden scholar and Cherry Hill resident will work closely with Finnish business scholars and graduate students on research that evaluates multiple classes of stock in Europe. The Hanken School of Economics has campuses in Vaasa and Helsinki in Finland.

Broussard is an expert scholar in investments, portfolio management, and risk management, and his research has also delved into corporate finance, international stock markets, high frequency trading, and other financial market matters.

“It is a great personal and professional achievement to be chosen by the Fulbright board,” Broussard says. “My mission and purpose is to add value at the research and teaching levels at Rutgers–Camden. Part of that mission is to extend our international reach. I hope to make research inroads while being part of Fulbright program.”

Broussard says much research has already been done on multiple classes of stock in U.S. markets, but there is still a lot to learn about European stock.

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. It is designed to increase mutual understanding between the United States and other countries.

Broussard was selected for the award by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, a 12-member board appointed by the President of the United States that is responsible for supervising the Fulbright Program worldwide and approving selection of all Fulbright recipients.

Established in 1946, the Fulbright Program is the most widely recognized and prestigious international exchange program in the world.  More than 300,000 students and scholars around the world have participated in the program since its inception.

Broussard teaches courses in principles of finance and portfolio implementation at Rutgers–Camden and instructs students in the Financial Markets Lab, an authentic trading room at the Rutgers School of Business–Camden that enables undergraduate and graduate students to practice wealth management, gain real-world trading insight, and simulate investing and fund management.

He has served as a visiting professor at the Turku School of Economics in Finland, Lappeenranta University of Technology in Finland, and most recently at Middlesex University in London.

Broussard received his bachelor’s degree from Louisiana State University, his master’s degree from Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss., and his doctoral degree from Louisiana State University.
