So far, the EDHEC Speaker Series “The Future of Finance”, launched and managed by E. Jurczenko (EDHEC), has gathered hundreds of online participants – students, researchers, finance professionals… - around 16 speakers from the best academic and financial institutions. All the replays associated with the two first seasons of this series are available online.


We have gathered an impressive line-up of international industry and academic experts to address the most recent and hottest issues that Finance is currently facing. The diversity of their profiles and the subjects we’ve chosen together - on Climate Investing, Impact & Private Markets, AI and Decentralized Finance - should be of interest to a growing number of participants. I can't wait for this new season to start!”.
