The Economics Department and the Graduate School support regular workshops in Macroeconomics, Econometrics, Microeconomics, Pedagogy, and Professionalization. These gatherings create an opportunity for students to share research ideas and receive comments and suggestions on their ongoing research projects.

The workshops in Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, and Econometrics allow students to present their preliminary research to faculty and students with similar research interests. The supportive and casual atmosphere of these lunch workshops encourages students to engage in discussions.

To support our Ph.D. students as they prepare to teach undergraduate courses at Emory and elsewhere, the economics department faculty, in collaboration with faculty in the Goizueta School of Business, organizes a pedagogy workshop for graduate students. The workshop complements the TATTO training as it focuses more on philosophical and content issues rather than stylistic issues.

Professionalization Workshops offer opportunities for graduate students to learn about skills that are important for their professional lives as economists, but which are not systematically covered in graduate courses. Topics including data acquisition, typesetting, paper writing, conference presentation, writing referee reports, job market preparation, and grant writing are covered in the workshops.

Spring 2017 Workshop Calendar

All graduate students and faculty are encouraged to attend any workshop. We do not currently have any upcoming workshops. Please check back again for updates.
