In the Banking Workshop, faculty and invited speakers present new banking research and banking research papers, with an emphasis on the economics of financial institutions.

For information concerning this workshop, please email Jennifer Williams or call her at 773.702.5530.

When possible, links to the workshop papers are posted to this page for printing. Occasionally, speakers opt not to circulate their papers. Therefore, the link will be unavailable.

We have been closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19, and have decided, in accordance with university guidance and for the safety of our community, to hold the banking workshop through online video conference only. We will send out the link in the email announcements.
