Economics Ph.D. 50th Anniversary

50th Anniversary

The WVU College of Business and Economics is celebrating 50 years of the Ph.D. in Economics April 21 - 23, 2017. The celebration starts that Friday at 5 pm at the Erickson Alumni Center where there will be a reception and poster session featuring the research of our current Ph.D. students. On Saturday morning, we will meet up in the Business and Economics Building on the downtown campus. We will provide a light breakfast and poster sessions from some of our Ph.D. alumni, and possibly some of our former faculty. Contact Professor Joshua Hall ( ) if you would like to share your research. There will be more activities during the day Saturday, ending with a light reception, followed by a sit-down dinner at the Erickson Alumni Center.

Many former faculty will celebrating with us, and we hope to see you in April. Please spread the word about this special event with other alumni and former faculty who might be interested.
