Barcelona School of Economics PhD Jamboree 2021


PhD students led the two-day academic conference and presented work to their peers across the BSE research community.

The 8th edition of the Barcelona School of Economics PhD Jamboree took place last month in an online format. 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.

The BSE PhD Jamboree receives support from the Severo Ochoa Research Excellence Program.
