Research Day 2014

The NYU Stern School has the largest and, by some measures, the most active Finance faculty of any university in the world. One of our most popular regular offerings for NASDAQ DRP and Volatility Institute Sponsors, Salomon Center Associates, and all of our friends in academia and on the Street is the annual Research Day conference. Research Day this year will be held on Friday, February 21, 2014. Research Day is our chance to provide quick looks at some of the most interesting projects that are currently under way among our active Finance research faculty. Along with presentations of research work in progress, we will continue the very popular Senior Faculty Panel Discussion on the current state of the world economy and financial system.

Attendance is free of charge but seating is strictly limited and so registration is required.
