Joint Graduate Student Conference with MIT

Under the leadership of Lars Hansen and Robert Townsend, Joint Program students and PhD students from Massachusetts Institute of Technology presented their ongoing research in macroeconomics, finance, growth and development, and corporate finance.

The aim of this joint conference was to allow students to present their work to a less familiar audience, to get a wider range of feedback, and to interact and build relationships with potential future colleagues. To facilitate in-depth discussion across areas of interest, each paper presented was assigned a discussant from other university.
