Terry College of Business - University of Georgia

RMI Ph.D. Student Symposium




The Risk Management and Insurance Program at the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business is proud to host the annual symposium for Ph.D. students with an interest in insurance, risk management, and other risk-related topics.  The students selected to participate have an opportunity to present a work in progress, ranging from working papers to dissertation essays. The students then receive valuable feedback from fellow Ph.D. students as well as participating faculty. The attending faculty are from the University of Georgia as well as other universities and institutions across the nation. Additionally, panel discussions focused on research strategies, the publication process, and other “early career” advice will be on the agenda. Students in the latter stages of degree completion are asked to submit a draft of a working paper (or dissertation essay) for presentation at the symposium. Students at earlier stages of their doctoral studies are also welcome to submit a proposal or a request to participate in the symposium. Program costs (meals, breaks, etc.) will be covered for all students attending. Additionally, some travel funding (e.g., domestic airfare and hotel) will be available to participants with preference given to those in the latter stages of degree completion. Funding for the program is provided by the Terry College of Business, the Risk Management and Insurance Program, the Alabama Center for Insurance Information and Research, and other generous sponsors. Those interested in participating should forward their paper/proposal to David Eckles (deckles@uga.edu) by December 3. Decisions will be made shortly afterwards. Interest from faculty wishing to participate in the workshop is also welcome.
