    in vs of

    I've heard two professors introducing themselves differently:

    I'm a professor in Finance
    I'm a professor of finance

    which one is accurate?

    Re: in vs of

    To be a professor in Finance (especially with the capital F), suggests that "Finance" is a department. He is a professor in that department.

    To be a professor of finance (and no capital is required or justified), suggests he teaches that subject.
