GEEZ Seminars

Graduate Students in Economics of Education

Zoom Seminars


We are excited to present you our Graduate students in Economics of Education Zoom (GEEZ) seminars.

The focus of this group is to provide a supportive platform for students to share their ongoing research. We hope to cover a wide expanse of topics relevant to Economics of Education and to highlight work happening in settings all over the world.

A presenter shares their piece of research over 20 minutes and afterwards there is 10-15 minutes for questions.
