Twice a year, in the spring and fall, NES organizes international conferences that attract a broad audience of economists who discuss their research with MAE students. While the fall conference (in October-November) brings speakers who are NES faculty and researchers from other economics departments, the spring conference (in April) hosts second-year MAE students as its main presenters – giving students the chance to see how much student research can accomplish. Each conference also features one or two Distinguished Lectures given by renowned economists. Beyond these regular conferences, the New Economic School occasionally holds thematic conferences in cooperation with other Russian research universities.
