Introducing gender in finance education in a European Business School: lessons, recommendations and challenges

ABSTRACT

Gender disparities in the financial industry may be molded during the educational years. In this paper, we study students’ school performance and behavior at a leading European Business School as a function of gender. We analyze students’ performance in the first-year finance mandatory course, as well as their finance specialization choices during their studies.
Further, using an innovative simulation platform called SimTrade, we develop an experiment to study how students react to gender-related news in financial markets. Throughout, we follow an “action research” to co-create the gender-related content of the experiment with students.
This allows us to better grasp students perceptions related to gender. We present the methodology and the lessons learned and conclude by proposing some recommendations to decrease the gender blindness of finance education in business schools.
