WVU’s College of Business and Economics recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the economics Ph.D. program with a two-day event in Morgantown. The April 21-22 event included a variety of events that saw attendees from across the U.S. and around the world.
“This was a terrific event that included program alumni from all over the world,” said Dr. Cliff Hawley, economics chair at B&E. “Jorge Guillen came from Peru, Javed Younas came from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and former professor Ron Balvers came from Canada. Chronologically and geographically, there was a wide spectrum of attendees.”
