EFA Doctoral Tutorial
The one-day EFA Doctoral Tutorial (EFA-DT) is an intensive and competitive session designed for PhD students in Finance who are nearing the end of their doctoral thesis and will soon be on the job market. Interested students apply in advance by submitting a single-authored paper and supporting documents (as per the relevant guidelines and deadlines posted) and eight PhD student papers are selected for presentation and discussion. The well-established EFA-DT is held in parallel with the recently launched EFA Doctoral Workshop (EFA-DW) on the same day the EFA Annual Meeting officially starts, preceded the evening before by a networking welcome dinner.
The reputation of the EFA-DT as an event of excellence in its own right firmly establishes it among the 3 main pillars of EFA's success: | the EFA Annual Meeting || the Review of Finance (EFA's own journal) || the EFA Doctoral Tutorial |
