Sixth International Moscow Finance and Economics Conference
On October 27-29, 2017, ICEF and the International Laboratory in Financial Economics (LFE) held the Sixth International Moscow Finance and Economics Conference at the Higher School of Economics.
First-class international scholars in the field and Moscow-based researchers presented their latest research and provided extensive comments on each other’s work.
This year’s Conference was particularly remarkable as it was held within 20th Anniversary celebrations of International College of Economics and Finance and unusually many foreign guests participated.
Among our invited speakers were such major scholars as Amir Yaron (Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania), Dmitry Livdan (Haas School of Business, University of California at Berkeley), Jos van Bommel (Luxemburg University), Sergey Tsyplakov (University of South Carolina), Ramin Baghai (Stockholm School of Economics), Fabiano Schivardi (LUISS and EIEF), Norman Schurhoff (HEC, Lausanne), Alexis Toda (University of California, San Diego).
It is notable that there were ICEF graduates among Conference speakers that have already obtained their PhD degrees and do research in foreign universities: ICEF MSc programme graduate 2009 Svetlana Bryzgalova (Stanford GSB) and ICEF BSc programme graduate 2007 Maria Chaderina (Vienna University of Economics and Business).
