Emrul Hasan

Lecturer

I am a lecturer at the VSE and Vantage College. Before joining UBC, I taught economics and finance courses at Simon Fraser University (SFU) and British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). I did my PhD in Finance at the Beedie School of Business of SFU. I have an MA in Economics from SFU and an MA in Financial Economics from York University. I am also a CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) charterholder and a certified FRM (Financial Risk Manager).

Before working in the education industry, I spent several years as an investment analyst and consultant at different investment banks, manufacturing firms, and think-tanks such as Fraser Institute and Asian Tiger Capital Partners Ltd. In these positions I worked on venture and private equity valuation, M&A, Macro Consulting, writing sector and industry reports.

I am originally from Bangladesh. During my free times, I play cricket at the British Columbia Mainland Cricket League (BCMCL). I spend a lot of time meeting and talking to my students regarding career and life planning. I love my job.

I am an active researcher working on capital gains taxes, asset pricing, behavioural finance and economics, IPO and SEO underpricing. My research philosophy, publications and working papers can be found here: emrulhassan.com/research

At UBC, I teach Econometrics, International Trade and Finance, Principles of Micro and Macroeconomics. I led diverse courses in Economics and Finance throughout my teaching career at different academic institutions. I believe these experiences added to the breadth of my knowledge consistent with what Joseph L. Rotman said “Breadth of knowledge is critical to developing high value decision-makers for today’s business world.” My teaching philosophy and the list of courses I taught can be found here: emrulhasan.com/teaching
