Professor Esty currently teaches the introductory finance course in the first year of the MBA program, but has taught a variety of elective courses including advanced corporate finance and project finance. The project finance course, called Large-Scale Investment (LSI), analyzed how firms structure, value, finance and negotiate large capital investments.

His articles have been published in a variety of academic and practitioner-oriented journals. In addition, he has written more than 100 case studies, technical notes, and teaching notes on project finance, financial strategy, mergers and acquisitions, emerging market investments, and valuation issues. Collectively, HBS Publishing has sold almost one million copies of his cases, and nine of them are currently or have been classified as HBS "bestsellers." The case studies and notes on project finance are contained in a book entitled Modern Project Finance: A Casebook (Wiley). Professor Esty is an associate editor of the Emerging Markets Review (EMR) and an Editor of the SSRN on-line journal called Financial Educator: Courses, Cases, & Teaching Abstracts, which publicizes the newest ideas in teaching materials, approaches, and methods. Formerly, he was an associate editor of the Journal of Financial Economics (JFE), Journal of Money, Credit & Banking (JMCB), Financial Management (FM), and Journal of Financial Services Research (JFSR).

In addition to his academic research, Professor Esty has served as a consultant to and led training programs for investment banks, consulting firms, government agencies, and multi-national corporations on a broad range of investment, financing, valuation, and leadership issues. In addition, he serves as an independent trustee for the Eaton Vance family of mutual funds and has served as an expert witness and consultant for litigation involving corporate finance and complex valuation issues.
