On Friday, October 23, we will have the second IDEAs. IDEAs will be a full day event. It will start at 10 AM and end at 5PM. In 20 minutes slots, Bellaterra economists will present ideas/questions in their research or fields of interest. The format will not be technical--- he goal will be to talk about ideas. IDEAs will be valuable to all students: those who want to pursue (or are pursuing) a PhD and those who want to use the tools learned in our Master's program to apply for jobs in consulting, banking, finance, etc. Lunch and coffee will be available. We are looking forward to seeing you on October 23.
