Between 1992 and 1994, he was one of the founding professors of the School of Business and Management at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, where he was the vice chairman of the faculty and the chairman of the faculty appointments committee. From 1994 to 1997, he served as the John J. Collins, S.J. Chair in Finance at Boston College.

Dr. Titman’s academic publications include both theoretical and empirical articles on asset pricing, corporate finance, and real estate and have been widely recognized for their excellence. In 1993 a landmark study on the profitability of momentum strategies by Dr. Titman and Narasimhan Jegadeesh was published, suggesting that building portfolios that are overexposed to past strong-performing stocks and underexposed to recent weak performers could earn investors abnormally large returns over a six-to-twelve month horizon.
