News and Events

Due to our emphasis on real-world application, The Robert Day School of Economics and Finance hosts many events to provide a meaningful link between academia and the financial services industry. Each semester, speakers from top academic institutions, Wall Street, and corporate America come to campus to participate in the Distinguished Speaker Series and RDS Seminar Series. Additionally, RDS students are encouraged to partake in the robust programs of the Athenaeum, which is a place where students and faculty gather daily for intellectual discourse in an intimate and relaxed setting to integrate their academic and social lives.
