Becker Brown Bag Series

The Becker Brown Bag Series was created to provide an informal setting in which prominent economists can present cutting-edge research and engage MBA students in discussion. The talks highlight the practical use of economics for answering real-world questions pertinent to businesses and policy makers.

While the Becker Brown Bag Series is directed towards current MBA students, alumni, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend. Brown Bags occur one to two times a quarter, with most events being held at Chicago Booth's Charles M. Harper Center. Lunch is provided at all of the events and no registration is necessary.
