The Barcelona Graduate School of Economics was one of three institutions in Europe selected to host this year's Review of Economic Studies Tour ("RESTUD Tour"). Since 1989, the Review has selected seven of the most promising graduating doctoral students in Economics and Finance in the world to present their research to audiences at prestigious institutions across Europe. Standard seminar presentations are given over two days to audiences invited by the local hosts and which include members of the journal’s editorial board.
The first stop on this year's tour was the Center for Studies in Economics and Finance (CSEF) at the University of Naples. After presenting their research at the Barcelona GSE, the speakers concluded their tour at the University of Munich.
