    PhD in Finance, Curtin; B.Sc. Engg, BUET

    Associate Dean International

    About me

    I joined the Murdoch Business School in February 2012 as Senior Lecturer in Finance. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology and my Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Finance from Curtin University (Australia). I held different positions in the industry for thirteen (13) years before commencing my academic profession. I worked as a business analyst, programmer and software developer for several well-reputed organisations, including St George Bank (Australia) and Air New Zealand (New Zealand). I also served as a civil engineer for several multinational construction companies in Bangladesh.

    I have had seventeen (17) years of experience teaching in all areas of Finance, including research methodology and data analytics to undergraduate and postgraduate students at Curtin University, University of Dubai (AACSB accredited), University of Southern Queensland, University of South Australia, and Murdoch University. Also, I have authored one of the top five international finance textbook entitled ‘International Financial Management’ (https://cengage.com.au/product/title/international-financial-management/isbn/9780170386135). Since Semester 2, 2018, the International Financial Management first Asia-Pacific edition has been using in sixteen (16) institutions in Australia and New Zealand including the University of Western Australia, the University of Technology Sydney, the Macquarie University and the Waikato University. Due to high market demand, the second edition is under development and will be available in October 2021.

    My research interest areas (alphabetically) include, but are not limited to, Data Analytics, Derivatives, Financial Engineering, Fintech and Market Micro Structure. I have published my research works in various journals including Energy Economics, International Review of Economics and Finance, Pacific-Basin Finance Journal, Global Finance Journal, International Journal of Managerial Finance, Energy Policy and Multinational Finance Journal. I have also received several grants and awards for excellence in research. I have presented my research works in twenty-nine (29) international conferences. I have authored a research-based finance text entitled Essays in Foreign Currency Options Markets (https://www.bookdepository.com/ Essays-in-Foreign-Currency-Options-Markets-Ariful-Hoque/9783639299571)

    I possess good leadership skills in the academic arena. I associated with International Development Strategies for International Students’ recruitment from September 2016 to December 2018. I also served as the Associate Dean International (September 2016-December 2017) and Associate Dean for Postgraduate Degrees (May 2012-July 2015).
