Florida State / College of Law / Law, Business and Economics / Jay Kesten

Jay Kesten, an assistant professor, practiced corporate law in Boston with Cooley Godward Kronish LLP. Professor Kesten's research concentrates on both theoretical and empirical aspects of corporate governance.

"In our business curriculum, we give students the opportunity to tackle real world problems head-on. For example, this spring, I'm offering a seminar that will examine complex and cutting edge topics in corporate governance and corproate finance. In the classroom, I draw on both my scholarship and experience from practice to provide students with tools they will need to enter a sophisicated corporate practice upon graduation."
