How to Write a Finance Paper

Financial papers and dissertations are no longer simply about calculating your formulas. They now must demonstrate extraordinary writing skills with a well-structured foundation including thorough research, excellent grammar, and proper formatting. Because each new step is dependent on its previous step's calculations, this all combines to an exceedingly complicated progression. Financial dissertations are considered the most difficult to write because, although they involve narrow topics, the research is excruciatingly extensive.

    Brainstorm numerous financial topics you can suggest to be the theme of your paper. Because the topic choice is so difficult, be sure to choose something narrow enough that your research is limited, but general enough that it can be proven in a practical manner. Most financial topics for papers and dissertations undergo multiple expansions and contractions before settling on the specific subject width.

    Submit a written finance dissertation proposal. This will include your desired topic as well as an elucidation of the research you will be doing in order to prove the veracity of your chosen focus. In your dissertation proposal, you must also demonstrate that you are qualified enough to carry out the research on the dissertation you are proposing.

    Create an outline for your dissertation. This will aid you immensely when it comes to the organization of the paper and save you a colossal amount of time lost due to frustration. Your outline should include the following sections, each set as their own mini paper:
    • Introduction
    • Literary Review
    • Methodology
    • Results
    • Discussion
    • Each of these sections, or mini papers, in the outline should have its own introduction, body, and conclusion upon which you will elaborate on extensively in the financial paper itself.
