Every year the School of Economics invites renowned experts from around the world to present top research in Applied Microeconomics, Economics, International and Development Economics, and other related fields.
In the past, we have hosted key figures in economics such as Nobel Laureates, top academic economists, and notable government figures. See our current schedule and past seminar series here. You can also find more information and Bluejeans links for the events on our events page.
FREIT and Georgia Institute of Technology are also hosting a new online only seminar series forum for international trade economists conducted via Zoom. The seminar will take place every Wednesday while COVID-19 pandemic lasts or until interest or energy disappear.
