Fall 2006
FBE Applied Economics Workshop

There is NO separate FBE Applied Economics Workshop schedule for the Fall 2006 semester.
There ARE three joint seminars with the Finance Seminar series and two joint CLEO seminars as shown below.

We also encourage you to explore the seminars offered by the USC Economics Department, which runs
4-5 seminar series, and the Center in Law, Economics and Organization (CLEO) workshop series, too.

Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you at our joint seminars this year.


The USC Finance and Business Economics Department sponsors three seminar series each semester.
Applied Economics Workshop | Finance Seminar Series | Macroeconomics and International Finance Workshop
The joint SPPD/Marshall School Lusk Center for Real Estate also offers a Real Estate Seminar series and the
FBE Dept. Center for Investment Studies has an occasional Distinguished Speaker Series.
