We run a regular seminar program to enable our academic staff and higher degree by research students to keep abreast of the latest research topics and interact with international, national and internal experts in the field. There are five types of seminar series: Applied Economics, Econometrics Colloquium, Economic Theory, Macroeconomics and School. Each has its own academic coordinator.
