EFA Doctoral Tutorial (EFA-DT)

The competitive one-day Doctoral Tutorial in Finance (EFA-DT) is for selected students nearing the end of their doctoral thesis and is held the same day as the official opening of the EFA Annual Meeting.  More information on the Doctoral Tutorials » Click here. 

EFA Doctoral Workshop (EFA-DW)

The New Frontiers in Finance Doctoral Workshop in Finance (EFA-DW) educational series was established in 2017 for PhD students in their second or third year.  The focus topic of the Workshop changes each year (as do the chairs) – the aim being to explore lesser-known areas of Finance, and for leading scholars to provide a solid background for PhD students interested in pursuing research in these fields.
