Outstanding PhD students will have the opportunity to discuss their dissertation research with other doctoral students and leading academics in the field of finance.

We are pleased to announce that Inquire UK and Inquire Europe are sponsoring a prize for best tutorial paper and that participation to the Tutorial will be free for students attending the 32nd EFA Annual Meeting.


The selected papers will be distributed to all participants to allow everyone to prepare the discussions. The tutorial is held in a collaborative, open and friendly atmosphere, and lively discussions and questioning from student and faculty participants is encouraged. To further this aim, each accepted paper will be discussed by at least one tutorial faculty. To encourage the collegiality of the tutorial, participants are asked to attend the entire tutorial. All participants will receive a certificate of participation.
