Upcoming webinars

3rd UNR College of Business–SGH Warsaw School of Economics Joint Symposium “COVID-19 and the Economy: Impact on Business, Academia, Government & People”

Zoom Webinar
Thursday, April 22-23, 2021, 8:00am-12:30pm PDT (5pm-9:30pm CEST)

The 3rd Symposium will be in webinar format using “Zoom Webinar.” We plan to have seven sessions with four/five 10-15-minute paper presentations in each session with up to 30 minutes for questions and discussion. We are including separate sessions for student presentations, which will be new this year. We believe this would be a good opportunity for students in PhD programs as well as GOED interns to meet and discuss their research with other faculty and students from UNR and SGH. This symposium is also supported by the Nevada Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED) International Division. The Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) provided financial support.
