This one-day workshop aims to bring together LBS PhD Alumni back to London. Like last time, we will have Finance, Accounting, and Economics papers running over two parallel tracks.

The first two editions were a great success, with more than 20 participants, including 10 Alumni plus current PhD students and faculty! Here are the 2019 program and pictures. This is the program for the 2nd workshop in 2022.

We hope 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.

Current LBS PhD candidates can submit and attend (for free). We always have 2-3 slots for current PhD students going into the job market.

Questions: If you have any queries, email 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 10mins Q&A (no discussants). This way we can maximize the number of presenters.
