dr. J.H. (Henk) von Eije

After I received my master title (Drs) from the University of Amsterdam, I worked at the University of Utrecht and the Erasmus University of Rotterdam. I received my PhD from the Erasmus University when I worked with the Foundation for Insurance Science. At this moment I am associate professor in Finance at the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Groningen. My current work is in the field of Corporate Finance.

I published in international refereed journals, amongst which the Journal of Financial Economics and the Journal of econometrics. My research interests are Dividend Policy, Initial Public Offerings, Venture Capital, Privatisation, Mergers and Acquisitions and Behavioral Finance. Much of this research has an international character. I also published on teaching and learning.

I am at the editorial board of Maandschrift voor Bedrijfseconomie and Accountancy (MAB), member of the editorial board of Research in Management Education and Development (book series), a reviewer for various journals, like the International Business Review, The Journal of Business Finance and Accounting, The Financial Review, European Financial Management and Managerial Finance. I also reviewed and (co-)organised of Finance conferences.

A variety of courses was taught by me: Macro-economics, Growth Theory, Cost Benefit Analysis, Economics of Social Security, Economics of Health Care, Insurance Economics, Risk Management, Corporate Finance, Financial Econometrics, Capital Budgeting, Business Research Methodology and Research Methodology for International Financial Management. I assisted about 200 Master students to finalize their thesis on a large variety of subjects within a broad range of companies. Moreover, I supervised six PhD candidates (1 with honors) of which three from developing countries. 

I have experience in advising Dutch firms and institutions and in international co-operation. I taught International Finance at the University of Ouagadougou (in French) and I supervised international research projects of students and assisted international PhD candidates from Eritrea and Burkina Faso. Moreover, I developed and supervised an international methodology course for the Institute of Finance Management in Dar es Salaam.

My major societal service was at the board of the Dutch disablement funds for a period of longer than 10 years. Recently I became treasurer of the Joannes Juda Groen Foundation for Interdisciplinary Behavioral Scientific Research (Sigo) and treasurer of IVN Eelde-Paterswolde.
