“The EDHEC Risk Days are a great way to meet top professionals from a wide area of expertise and to take part in hands-on workshops on very interesting research topics presented by excellent EDHEC staff. What I find most appealing is the practicality of the research, in other words – you can really use the outcomes and models in your everyday profession. Visiting the EDHEC Risk Days helps me to stay on top of my field.”
