SSE's annual Nobel Discussion with the laureate(s) takes place in December every year. Our students get to meet each year's winner(s) and a discussion is held at SSE's premises. Last year's Nobel Laureates Oliver Hart and Bengt Holmström honored us with their presence on December 12, 2016.
Nobel discussion with Nobel laureates Oliver Hart and Bengt Holmström, the recipients of the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in memory of Alfred Nobel 2016. The Nobel discussion was led by Professor Tore Ellingsen at the Assembly Hall at the Stockholm School of Economics.

In recent years we have welcomed esteemed winners such as Jean Tirol, Eugne F. Fama, Robert J. Shiller and Angus Deaton to the discussion at SSE. During his visit in 2014, Jean Tirole met with students and led an interesting discussion on some of the economic implications of corporate social responsibility.
The 2015 winner, Angus Deaton, joined us at SSE on the 12th of December. Listen to his interesting discussion on well-being as measured through happiness.
