Annual Baruch College/CUNY and Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) Research Symposium

The Baruch College /SWUFE Research Consortium was established over a decade ago. Its goal is to deepen the research ties between our two great universities by encouraging joint research projects and through the exchange of visiting scholars. A key event is the annual Baruch/SWUFE research conference. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the conference, which over the years has facilitated dozens of research collaborations, which in turn have resulted in numerous publications.
