The Warwick Economics Dissertation Colloquium is an endeavour to provide a nation-wide platform for Master’s students to present, discuss and therefore enable building and improving on their dissertation. In 2013, the year of establishment of this event, over 60 students from eight leading universities in UK participated in this event.
The event is a platform for students who are pursuing a taught or research Master’s degree in economics or related disciplines from across the country to share their research insights and ideas. This is an unique opportunity for dedicated future economists to meet each other and exchange thoughts – as participants, or as audience.
“A great overall experience. Extremely happy with the organisation and the whole academic feel of the event.” – Devika Shivadekar, M.Sc. in Finance 2012/13, University of St Andrews
The event is held in a relaxed and friendly environment. The sessions will be divided and presentations grouped according to the subject area of the dissertation; providing an opportunity for students to meet like-minded peers and engage in fruitful discussions. Each of the speakers spend approximately 20 minutes on the presentation. This is usually followed by a 10 minutes interaction in which the audience raise questions and voice their opinion and comments. Participants usually attend sessions of their choice, which will enable them to explore different areas of research.
The cosy common area outside the presentation rooms enable participants to network freely with other future economists. This would be followed by complimentary drinks & snacks, a light lunch reception, and dinner (optional).
Through the Dissertation Colloquium, participants get a chance advocate their research ideas, receive constructive feedback and suggestions and meet future economists from across the country. Join us and be a part of a day packed with academics, socialising, food and drinks – and get recognised for it!
