The PhD Program provides financial support to students for the first four years through a tuition benefit, research funds, health insurance and an annual $23,000 stipend for working as either a Graduate Research Assistant or Teaching Assistant to current faculty.
United States Securities and Exchange Commissioner Michael S. Piwowar will address students on Feb. 3, 2015 from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Eccles School’s Spencer Fox Eccles Business Building Auditorium (Room 1110).
Piwowar is one of five members of the SEC. President Barack Obama appointed him in 2013.
Seating is limited, so students are asked to register for the free event here, and they will be admitted based on RSVPs or their place in the day-of standby line. The event is expected to reach capacity quickly.
A familiar face at the David Eccles School of Business is expected to become the newest member of the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors.
Allan R. Landon, an adjunct professor at the David Eccles School of Business who has taught courses since 2011, was nominated by President Barack Obama on Tuesday to fill an open position of governor on the seven-member board.
If confirmed by the Senate, Landon will fill one of two vacancies on the board, which oversees the Federal Reserve System and plays a significant role in formulating U.S. monetary policy.
