Ph.D. Seminar - Friday, June 24, 2011
Please visit our mobile site for Forum information and updates on your mobile device.
Both academics and practitioners alike have never been more focused on solving a common interest set of relevant business and societal problems. In this half-day set of talks, come hear Wharton faculty and Wharton PhD graduates discuss their most relevant practical research. We expect both a lively discussion, e.g. “No get out of your ivory tower, that is not practical“ from our practitioner audience and e.g. “No, get out of your practice world, that solution is not right“ from our academic audience. The fireworks should be exciting.
*Dress Code: Business Casual for Forum and Business Suit for Thursday and Friday Dinners.
