Workshop “Global financial crises and banking institutions” for our Business and Economics students

On Thursday 26th and Friday 27th January, Year 12 and Year 13 BSA and BSX Business and Economics students attended a workshop entitled “Global Financial Crises and Banking Institutions“.

In this workshop our students were able to answer questions such as: why economies and individuals issue debt and why such debt issuance must be sustainable for long-term stable economic growth, why regulation is required to achieve financial stability and why countries with less market discipline and riskier behaviour are more vulnerable to construction, among others.

The talk was given by David Rivero, Assistant Professor at the University of Navarra and Research Fellow at IESE Business School. He holds a PhD in Economics from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Before joining the University of Navarra, he was a postdoctoral researcher at IESE Business School and visiting professor at the University of Barcelona and Lancaster University. 

David Rivero’s research focuses on financial stability and the intersection of banking and finance. His work has been published in international peer-reviewed journals related to financial economics.
