Economics Workshop

The Economics Workshop Series offer an opportunity for faculty and students to enjoy academic research presentations by scholars from around the world in their areas of expertise. Papers being presented are available for review prior to the workshop on our web site.

Following most workshop events, the Barstool Economists group meets at a local eatery, where the discussions with the speaker can be continued in a less formal environment. The workshops are open to all SJSU students, faculty and invited guests.
