10th Anniversary Conference
Friday, September 24, 2010
Ten years ago, we opened the doors of the Bendheim Center for Finance to fulfill the same mission we have today: to develop new courses and programs in finance that will afford exciting learning opportunities to Princeton students and to establish a leading center for modern financial research.
On September 24, we celebrated this decade of leadership in finance education and research with a day-long conference featuring leading faculty of the program that culminated in a public lecture by the founder of the program, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke. The full text of his talk is available at the Federal Reserve website.
