Fifth Annual Napa Conference on Financial Markets Research

Click Here for the current Napa Conference on Financial Markets Research


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. To reflect the unique character and focus of the school, the conference sessions take place at the Cakebread Winery located in the bucolic Napa Valley.
