Dr. Moez Bennouri, Associate professor in Finance, joined Montpellier Business School in June 2015. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from Toulouse University. He has a teaching experience of more than fifteen years in several institutions (HEC Montréal, NEOMA Business School) where he taught courses in both financial markets and corporate finance areas for different degrees (Bachelor, Master, Ph.D. and Executive Education). Using different methodologies, his main research investigates the impact of information asymmetries on the strategic behavior of economic agents. This question is applied to several topics in finance and economics including the microstructure of financial markets, auction theory, initial public offerings, and more recently to corporate governance. His research is published in international journals such as the Review of Finance, Economic Theory or the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organizations.
