World Class Faculty & Research


Professor M. Cecilia Bustamante at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business was an invited speaker at the first conference organized by the Association of Female Academics in Finance, a subsidiary of the American Finance Association.

The conference, which took place in March 2017 in Miami, Fla., showcased women role models in finance and provided an avenue for researchers to receive feedback on their research. Bustamante was chosen as one of six finance scholars who presented papers at the event.

Bustamante, an assistant professor of finance at the Smith School, received her PhD in finance from the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. She was a visiting scholar at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, during her PhD studies. Before joining UMD, she worked as an assistant professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science and as a consultant in forensic finance in international arbitration procedures.
