Speakers

Alvin Roth

Nobel Laureate in Economics

2012

William Sharpe

Nobel Laureate in Economics

Michael Spence

Nobel Laureate in Economics

DESCRIPTION

The I.S.E.O. Institute is extremely honoured to feature three Nobel Laureate in Economics – Alvin Roth, William Sharpe and Michael Spence  – as lecturers for the 16th edition of the I.S.E.O Summer School. The panel will be further enriched by the presence of additional international economists, whose names will be announced later.

The I.S.E.O Summer School is an international summer course focused on the most topical economic discussion.  The 16th edition will be centred on “Global economy and financial markets: what lies ahead” : this macro theme will be analyzed by each lecturer using his particular approach and studies.

As from the very first edition in 2004, the course will gather a large number of graduate students in Economics (phd, master, young assistants) coming from the most important faculties in the world to participate to this multicultural debate.

The I.S.E.O. Summer School will be based on a fair combination of lectures (morning and afternoon sessions), debates and discussion on one hand, and trips and excursion into the most beautiful corners of Northern Italy on the other.

The course takes place in Iseo, a peaceful village facing the homonymous lake (Iseo lake) in Northern Italy,  not too far from Milan. Both classes and accommodation are going to be hosted at the Iseolago hotel, a charming four star hotel by the lake.

For further general information about the I.S.E.O. Summer School you can visit the dedicated web page, video and photogallery.
