Venue: Peston Lecture Theatre, Mile End Road
In Conversation with Robert Peston: 'Brexit Britain'
In January 2017 the School of Economics and Finance at QMUL moved into a new Graduate Centre on the Mile End campus. The innovative teaching and learning spaces, including a mock trading room, have transformed the School. The building also houses the 200-seat Peston Lecture Theatre, named in honour of the late Lord Maurice Peston, founder of the School of Economics and Finance at QMUL and an economist of national and international renown.
To celebrate our new building, and to inaugurate the Peston Lecture Theatre, we are delighted to invite you to ‘In Conversation with Robert Peston: Brexit Britain’ on Thursday 11 May 2017.
The event will begin at 6pm when Robert will be joined in conversation by QMUL alumnus Daniel Trinder (PhD Economics, 1998), Managing Director and Global Head of Regulatory Reform at Standard Chartered Bank, and Professor Philip Cowley, Director of the Mile End Institute and Professor of Politics in the School of Politics and International Relations at QMUL. Professor Sujoy Mukerji, Head of the School of Economics and Finance, will be chairing the event.
There will be an opportunity for questions from the audience before a drinks reception concluding at 8pm.
