LBS PhD Alumni Workshop 2020

LBS Alumni 2020 Workshop

Date: August 17th, 2020 (Monday)

Venue: London Business School, London, UK

Workshop organizers: Pedro Saffi (Cambridge), Oğuzhan Karakaş (Cambridge), and Yi Huang (Geneva)

The one-day workshop aims to bring together LBS PhD Alumni in Finance, Economics, and Accounting back to London right before the EFA 2020 meetings in Helsinki.

The 1st edition was a great success with more than 20 participants, including 10 Alumni plus current PhD students and faculty! 2019 programme and presenters' pictures.

Ultimately, we hope that the workshop provides an excellent chance to catch up with old friends, remember the good (and bad) times, and get together with current LBS PhD students and faculty.

We hope to see as many of you as we can!

Format: The format will depend on the number of accepted papers and venue constraints, but we are aiming for 20mins for each presentation and 15mins Q&A (no discussants). This way we can maximize the number of presenters and papers.

Conference Fee: We will charge a small contribution to cover the coffee breaks and lunch at LBS. Pints at the Windsor Castle and dinner at Nando's (Oğuzhan's favorite restaurant) aren't included! This will be around 50-60 pounds / person.

Questions: If you have any queries, email
