Sunday, October 15 from 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm in Raytheon Amphitheatre, Egan Research Center (120 Forsyth St, Boston, MA 02115)
Sponsored by NU Economics Society and NU Women in Economics
The symposium will take place on Sunday, Oct. 15 from 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm in the Egan Research Center. It will be an amazing opportunity for Northeastern students to discover the real-world applications of the economics they learn in class.
This year’s theme will focus on the impact of emerging technology in developing economies. As we enter a “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” we believe this is an opportune time for attendees to learn more about the era of digital transformation across the globe and discuss solutions for developing economies to adapt to these changes. Symposium attendees will have the opportunity to engage with a diverse group of business professionals and established economists to understand the nuances of our global economy as well as the benefits and shortcomings of technological proliferation. In the age of rapid globalization and technological innovation, we hope to empower our peers to think critically about how we might close the green-tech gap and protect the future of our planet.
