Economics Lunch

Economics Lunch

The Economics Lunch provides an excellent opportunity for doctoral students at the Faculty of Business and Economics to present their research and advance it productively through discussions with fellow students and professors. All Ph.D. students at the Faculty of Business and Economics must present in the Economics Lunch at least once before finishing their doctorate. Depending on availability, the Economics Lunch is also open for professors, and for doctoral students from other institutions. See Information about the Economics Lunch for more details.
