Departmental Research Seminar
The Economic Seminar Series is made possible by a generous donation from Dr. Jacques Artus.
Attending the Fall and Spring Economic Seminar Series is a way to see what industry professionals and leaders are currently working on, and a great way to network with fellow students and industry professionals.
All seminars run from 3:00-4:30. Refreshments will be served.
Please note that seminar locations are subject to change. To confirm the location or if you would like to be included on the seminar mailing list, please contact the Department's Program Assistant, Michelle Santana.
