Professor of Finance, Hult International Business School

Viktoria Dalko is a qualified, internationally-recognized financial expert, providing consulting and executive training on risk management, business valuation, corporate strategy, corporate finance, and financial market strategies, especially as related to mergers and acquisitions and financial market dominance, to corporations and governments on five continents.

Dalko received teaching excellence awards from Harvard Extension School, Hult International Business School, Thunderbird School of Global Management, and the City University of New Yorks Baruch College. She served as advisor to the president of the National Bank of Hungary and was chief of staff for the Hungarian Parliaments Committee of Budget, Tax, and Finances. She served as the dean and finance discipline lead at Hult.

In their book, Regulating Competition in Stock Markets (Wiley, 2012), Dalko and her co-authors identify several mechanisms of how systemic risk emerges from particular trading strategies. Their research aims to help to understand, predict, and even prevent systemic collapse in financial markets. Their work provides risk governance policy recommendations for key decision makers.

She is a frequent keynote speaker, speaker, and session chair at prestigious international academic conferences on finance and economics. Dalko enjoys teaching for the opportunity to work with highly motivated students from varied backgrounds since, at its core, finance is about people.
