Seminar Series


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the School has paused the on-site seminar series for fall 2020. However, the School is co-sponsoring the online seminar series in International Trade with FREIT (Forum for Research in Empirical International Trade). FREIT seminars take place every Wednesday. 

During the academic 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.
