“Financial Institutions and Financial Stability” is the fourth annual conference hosted by the School’s finance group. Organized by Professor Robert Marquez, the invitation-only forum brings together top researchers to present their latest insights on regulatory reform for financial intermediaries, the past and future role of capital for banks, crisis resolution, and liquidity provision by financial institutions. Speakers from Duke University, New York University, the University of Washington, the International Monetary Fund, and the Federal Reserve Bank will share insights from their latest research, with topics ranging from the response of banks to aid provided to them by the government, to the role capital plays at financial intermediaries, among others.
This inaugural symposium, developed in partnership with the UC Davis Graduate School of Management, will convene leading academics and practitioners to foster a debate and discussion on sustainability and finance issues. This event will be held in the vicinity of Napa Valley’s wine country in Davis, California with working dinners on both Thursday and Friday.
Hosted by Professor Andrew Hargadon, Professor Kimberly Elsbach and Associate Professor Beth Bechky, this intensive workshop offered participants a conceptual and practical understanding of qualitative research methods. Drawing on their combined expertise, Hargadon, Elsbach and Bechky led three days of sessions and fieldwork on how and when to use qualitative data collection and analysis techniques, as well as how to craft a contribution to the field.
This is the second annual symposium on financial institutions and intermediaries. Co-chaired by Professor Yasuda and Professor Edelen, this year’s symposium features guests from around the world to discuss key topics on private equity.
The Graduate School of Management partners with the Financial Management Association to co-sponsor this unique conference. Financial Management is the flagship journal of FMA which seeks high quality articles that are of interest to academics, but also have the potential to influence business practice. The Graduate School of Management is a small, intimate community of top-notch students and world-class scholars with strong ties to the California wine industry.
