10th BSE PhD Jamboree

group of students participating in 10th BSE Jamboree

The initiative which gives PhD students a space to share their work and connect with other BSE students celebrates its 10th edition.

The popular annual event took place on May 11-12, 2023. The Jamboree is a workshop organized by PhD students in the Graduate Program in Economics, Finance and Management (GPEFM) at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) and the International Doctorate in Economic Analysis (IDEA) at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). Both PhD programs are organized jointly with BSE.

Every year the event features keynote speakers from Alumni of the PhD programs. This year’s invited speakers included: 

In total, 22 presentations were given and workshops were guided by discussants to provide presenters with constructive criticism and raise issues for broader consideration to help with the development of the research.  The event attracted 66 attendees across the two days. 

The Jamboree is a BSE research event supported by the Severo Ochoa Research Excellence Program.

This year’s Jamboree organizers were:

A note from the organizers

All three of this year’s organizers expressed their gratitude towards the participants for such engaging and insightful discussions and shared why initiatives like the Jamboree are so important for the Research community. 

"Conferences are one of the most appreciated aspects of research life because they offer opportunities to exchange ideas and develop connections. I joined the organizing team to provide fellow Ph.D. students a place to connect." - Elliot Motte

“I think this edition of the Jamboree was a great experience for everyone involved. It was a pleasure helping to maintain such an amazing tradition of the BSE for another year. A special word needs to go to the three keynote speakers that so kindly accepted our invitation to take part in this event. They provided not only great advice through their own presentations but were also highly engaged during the students' presentations on both days. In my opinion, the Jamboree is unique as it represents an opportunity to discuss your research with your peers and, perhaps more importantly, to interact with the whole student community of the BSE." - Gustavo Noguera 

Tom Pesso another organizer of the event echoed these thoughts “I think the event was a success as it triggered fruitful interactions between members of the BSE community that do not necessarily have a chance to meet otherwise.”
