In 2000, we opened the doors of the Bendheim Center for Finance to fulfill the same mission we have today: to develop new courses and programs in finance that will afford exciting learning opportunities to Princeton students and to establish a leading center for modern financial research. 

In September 2010, we celebrated this decade of leadership in finance research and education with a daylong conference featuring leading faculty of the program culminating in a lecture by the initiator of the program, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke.
