Program on Financial Stability

Improving our understanding and management of systemic risk.

Center news

The Yale Program on Financial Stability (YPFS) was founded in 2013 to focus on the broad topics of systemic risk and macroprudential regulation. 

In its early years, researchers at the YPFS authored dozens of case studies on these topics, and hosted an annual set of meetings to bring together policymakers from around the world.  These activities covered both “peacetime” policies designed to prevent crises, and “wartime” policies designed to fight crises in progress. 

Over the years, the program's activities have evolved beyond case writing to include the series of projects under our purview today.

Master of Management Studies in Systemic Risk

A first-of-its-kind, specialized master’s degree for early- and mid-career employees of central banks and other major regulatory agencies with a mandate to manage systemic risk. The year-long program focuses in macroprudential policy, financial crisis management, global financial regulation, monetary economics, capital markets, and central banking.
