The Department of Finance at Iowa State University hosts periodic research seminars and invites top finance scholars as our guest speakers to present their research. Our research workshops also allow faculty members to explore their own research in the form of brown bag presentations. The seminar series provides a forum for faculty members, graduate students, and invited guest speakers to present and discuss cutting-edge research in all areas in finance.

For more information about our speakers series, contact Shaoting Pi.
