The Becker Friedman Institute proudly sponsored a conference highlighting the work of graduate students pursuing research on financial markets. The conference brought together students from the University of Chicago and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Three students from each school studying aspects of financial economics presented their work, while students from the corresponding school served as discussants.

The event provided students with fresh feedback and new perspectives on their work, a chance to refine their presentations before entering the job market, and opportunities to connect with a broader circle of students and future colleagues.
